Reducing fuel surcharges - reward flights

BA have just reduced their fuel surcharge by 26 pounds for long-haul return flights (20 for medium haul).

As oil approached $75/bbl I suspect this is going to be an increasingly regular occurance. Has anyone had an experience in trying to reclaim some of the surcharge for a future reward booking (I booked last month for a flight in April).

The only way may be to cancel and rebook or change the flight. Cancel will definately work but may result in you losing the flight (and incurring a 20 pounds charge - but the fuel surcharge may have fallen more than this) or a change would cost 25 pounds but could work out quite expensive if you have multiple legs and two single journey bookings (as I do).

Any thoughts?
