    I presume they will have some way of checking whether your claims are valid or not? I know my wife and I will both have flown dozens of times on BA and/or Virgin in that time, but not exactly when.

    thanks for this, we went to Florida November 2004 and spent a fortune so getting a little back will be nice. I have registered and will keep you updated on how it goes.

    thank again

    The judgement was in an American Court.

    "Long haul flights"-is it only to USA or as in my case I flew return to St Lucia within the time scale specified.

    Am I covered ????

    I did the same in Dec 04 - travelled on my maiden name so that is the name I put down on the compensation form to enable them to prove I took the flight. I actually booked for 5 of us and have listed all for my address as I was the one who made and paid for the flights.

    Wonder if BA or Virgin will give me a free flight to Florida instead - guess not!!

    Thanks for the address. Sadly, most of my flights to the states were in the months just before August (Feb and April). But, I do have 2 flights to and from the states that qualifies. Yay!

    My wife and I flewto the States twice in this time, both with BA. It was an integral part of a tour package. Is the refund due to us or will it be available to the Tour Company? Answers on the back of a twenty pound note please.

    The family and I (5 in total) flew BA in 2005 to Dubai from Heathrow. According to the BA website the outward flight is 6 hrs 45 mins and the return 7 hrs 45 mins. Thus only the return flight is over the 7hours. I think I'll claim and see what happens.

    Nothing ventured nothing gained.

    Hi
    Can anyone tell me if if this applies to package holidays with Virgin / BA also? We flew to New York and Jamaica with Virgin Holidays, and also New York again with BA, but it was booked through Thomas Cook as a package.
    Hope someone can help.

    Thanks

    I registerd but no email yet
    i registered on the site but have received no email back.

    All i entered on the site was my name and address and contact details.

    Do they send you a follow up email to imput your flight details?

    If so, i have not received it.

    I did this on Sunday

    Would it be unreasonable to try to claim for "Freddie Fares" which were heavily discounted by Virgin for flights to Australia following an England cricket success?

    I think BA had similar offers too.

    Does anyone know - is it if you travelled between these dates or booked and paid for the tickets? We flew to New York April '06, so just missed out, but booked December '05.
  • winnywitch
    Does anyone know if I have to register the whole family separately?
    Or will i give my childrens information at a later stage?

    It's my understanding (and stated in the website for registration to claim) that the claim criteria is that you bought long haul ticket(s) between 11 August 2004 and 23 March 2006. This is when the fuel s/c would have been applied.

    i flew to jfk in july 2005 so im guessing the flight was booked after august 04. i flew with an athletics group, would they be able to reclaim the money for all the 100 or so tickets they bought or can they only claim the one lot of 2 or whatever it is? (the organisation is a charity so the money would come in handy!)
