British Airways has faced criticism from consumer groups and other airlines for raising its fuel surcharge again. The rise is the ninth rise since the levy was introduced in May 2004. The airlines first surcharge three years ago was £2.50. The airline's levy on long haul flights of less than nine hours increased from £33 to £38 or £76 return. For flights lasting more than nine hours the surcharge has risen from £38 to £43. BA's short haul flights will not see an increase on the present charge of £8 one way.
