Reply To: Osborne tells airlines to pass on fuel cost savings

Back to Forum


Where there is profit to be made the airlines will always drag their feet.

There are of course other reasons why the ‘airline surcharge’ will come down slowly if at all which is all to do with the way in which they skim off a nice income from ‘reward’ flights.

If Osborne had any balls had would look at whether charges like this which go directly to the airline should be rolled into the headline fare. All this guff about watching like a hawk etc is just populist politics.
