Reply To: How does each Airline set fuel surcharges?

Back to Forum


I see KLM doubled their fuel service charge the other day looking to book on line.
£40 to Amsterdam, £80 to Budapest?!!
With the hike in Government taxes due in Nov in the UK, Airlines should come clean, or BT do it’s readers a favour, & expose the true fuel surcharges of our optons on a few key routes, east West, maybe a short haul & a few long hauls, with many other airlines…NOT just The BA Feature showtime!

The SQ fares at £399 advertised from LHR – SYD, was a £65 fare, the rest all the charges taxes, fuel surcharges etc.

No wonder we look to the EU more now to commence our long haul travel, the standards at LHR the charges are reaching the point where tolerance is dropping.
Good luck to BRU, AMS, FRA, it seems they take the business from the UK.
