Airline Fuel Surcharges - How Bad Will It Get?

With the daily new crude price records being set, it seems a good bet that airlines will only increase their fuel surcharges until some type of solution can be found....assuming there is one.

Is this a new reality that travellers will have to deal with for the foreseeable future?

The engine is the heart of an airplane, but the pilot is its soul.

Yes I believe it is, that way they can still advertise the lower fare and then hit you with a fuel surcharge.

Airlines have no choice but to pass the increased cost of fuel on to passengers. Apart from some opportune hedging, it is largely beyond their control.




Panam, TWA, Ansett, Eastern.......AC next? Might be good for Canada.

My guess would be at first $10.00 per one way per ticket, so roughly an additional $20.00 round trip. Only to go higher if fuel prices do.
