British Airways and Virgin Atlantic tentatively agreed to settle a U.S. price-fixing suit over fuel surcharges. British Airways did not confirm the size of the settlement, but the U.S. law firm that filed the class-action suit said the two airlines could pay more than $200 million to customers who flew between Aug. 11, 2004, and March 23, 2006.

The chief executive of Deutsche Post AG chief executive Klaus Zumwinkel tendered his resignation in the wake of charges that he evaded $1.45 million in taxes.
