[UPDATE, May 26, 2017: IAG informed industry partners that British Airways and Iberia would add a $10 fee as of Nov. 1, essentially for each one-way trip, on tickets purchased in global distribution systems. The fee will be displayed as a "Q charge" in fare constructions, and included in itinerary fare quotes. Refunds will align with the rules of the fare. The fee will not apply to fully flexible fares, and there are some other exceptions. It will, however, apply to tickets purchased for travel on codeshare partners . . .
