Passengers who were overcharged during their flight from the United Kingdom to the United States, between 2004 to 2006, are entitled to claim refunds totaling to $139M.
The refunds are due to passengers who flew the Atlantic via BA or Virgin, between August 2004 and March 2006. Passengers were overcharged by the two airlines, when they conspired on fixing fuel surcharges on transatlantic flights.
The refunds range from $2 and $22.50 for each ticket bought in the UK or US. The deadline for submitting a claim is December 31 2012.
It is estimated that around 5.6 million people flew during this period.
