Forget About Elimination of the Jet-Fuel Surcharge

Quote:
CBS.MarketWatch.com correspondent Charlie Turner reports that major U-S air carriers are unlikely to eliminate the jet-fuel surcharge from passenger tickets even though the price of fuel has recently nosedived.
Personally, I think that consumers would prefer the surcharge to be dropped and the fare to be raised the same amount. People are understanding and willing to accept the harder times, but this feels like the airlines are trying to "pull a fast one."

I agree with that... most of the time when I look up ticket prices, I get these fantastic rates.. like $200 for a roundtrip to LHR... but once I want to go purchase it, it adds up all the taxes and surcharges, and all of a sudden, I end up with a $350 ticket... if they can elimate all these so called surcharges and incorporate it into the ticket price, it would be a lot less confusing to many travellers....
