This is my first post and I'm sorry if this has been discussed before.
I have a couple of questions regarding the increase in APD that was announced by Gordon Brown earlier this month.
1. Does it apply to all purchased tickets regardless which airline/country they were purchased?
2. Can airlines outside of the EU do something regarding this increase? One could say the lower increase for intra-european flights is biased?
3. This is more of a discussion; who thinks that the increase should have been the other way around (Higher Increase for Intra-European)as in if I fly to Paris or Amsterdam, I can take a train to those destinations where as I HAVE to Fly to New York as the other mode of transport will take a week.
Looking forward to your replies!
