I was "blessed" with this on a paid ticket...Last week, I was returning back to the US on BMI on a ticket I had purchased 6 months earlier and they told me I had to pay 40.00 Pounds for some new tax. I thought that since I purchased the ticket before the ruling, that I should not be affected. BMI said now way and I had to pay it or I would be denied boarding, so I paid it...I really thought it was unfair, but was left no choice...
|Quoting Mutu (Reply 8):|
Yes sadly the UK governments last increase in passenger duty was made retrospectively in effect, applying to all flights TAKEN from the applicable date rather than all tickets BOUGHT. Many airlines got in a mess about this and made pax pay up, a handful took a pragmatic approach that the confusion caused would be a PR nightmare and absorbed the cost themselves and paid over the tax to the Treasury (BA/VS did the latter. so BMI appear to be odd man out here).

I thought the new tax rules apply only to tickets bought on or after December 16.. At least that was what ANA was told, so that was what we implemented...

VS has different seats as do some of the UK charter airlines . Also I think NZ have different ones also.

and found out the taxes on the Frequent Flyer ticket are double the asking price for the regular priced ticket on the same flights / same day as the route
|Quoting Zkojh (Reply 18):|
is there now a delay in bmi again?
|Quoting BMED (Reply 21):|
I guess that when you have such a small fleet of long haul aircraft and they all need to have their seats changed then they will have trouble finding a time slot where the can take the aircraft out of service and use a replacement?
