With oil at $60 a barrel... you think its not right for AC to increase the surchage?
|Quoting EnviroTO (Reply 2):|
Isn't the price at $60 a barrel causing problems for all airlines? Why a surcharge instead of raising the fares? I hardly find fuel in the plane a luxurious additional expense. I have problems with the whole idea of surcharges on items that are necessary expenses that we cannot opt out of.
|Quoting Yyz717 (Reply 7):|
A fuel surcharge is the correct approach, as opposed to a general fare increase. A fuel surcharge is more transparent and can be more easily identified (and hence removed) should fuel prices drop.
|Quoting EnviroTO (Reply 9):|
Only if the advertised price includes the fuel surcharge can I agree with that statement. I have no problem with seeing a cost breakdown for transparency, but if one price is shown it should be the all inclusive one.
|Quoting AirTran737 (Reply 8):|
All airlines need to add either a fuel surcharge, or jack up the ticket prices. The LCC's need to participate in this increase as well.
