Abstract:     
A review of the Court of Appeal decision in Emerald Supplies Ltd v. British Airways plc., rejecting the representative action against British Airways seeking money damages for the alleged global air fuel surcharges cartel. The Article critically examines the decision and concludes that the Court of Appeal has extremely limited the scope of the representative rule, missing a gem of an opportunity to render it a truly flexible tool of convenience.
