Airline fuel surcharges starting to drop

With the price of oil dropping as fast as the stock market it’s time for me to back pedal again on the fuel surcharge issue. Many major carriers just announced a reduction in the fuel surcharge amount that they have been charging.

This reduction has started in the started in the trans-Atlantic market but as fuel costs decrease it appears that the reductions of surcharges will occur in other markets.

There have even been some murmurings of refunding a portion of the fees paid to the customer but I have not seen any official notification of that act but I’ll keep you posted.
