What makes it worse is that BMI substantially overcharges for fuel.

For example, today I went to book a OW ticket from LHR to BRU for Mrs.Carolinian. I checked BMI and found a paid fare of GBP 132 including GBP 68 of ''taxes and fees''. I could use 4500 DC miles and pay the GBP 68. However on checking BA, I found an all-in fare of GBP 67.30 including taxes and fees of GBP 48.30. Of course it was a no brainer which option I used.

But does it really cost BMI or its codeshare partners that much more for fuel to fly their planes (particularly since LH took over) than BA or are they just ripping us off ?
