British Airways fare rises ‘absolutely inevitable’ as fuel prices increase

16 July 2008

The national carrier said increasingly tough economic conditions – with oil prices nudging £150 a barrel – made price hikes of up to four per cent “‘absolutely inevitable'”.

The warning came as both BA and Ryanair announced unprecedented cutbacks in their flight schedules to save on fuel costs.

BA has scrapped hundreds of flights over the summer, merging half empty flights to popular destinations to reduce its consumption of fuel.
