JAL maintains international fare fuel surcharge for Feb-March

6 Comments

Japan Airlines (JAL) said Wednesday that it will maintain current levels of fuel surcharge on all international passenger tickets issued between Feb 1, 2012 and March 31, 2012.

JAL sets fuel surcharge levels bimonthly based on the 2-month average price of Singapore kerosene-type jet fuel. The price of Singapore kerosene-type jet fuel during the two month period of October and November 2011 averaged $125.75 per barrel.

The fuel surcharges will range from 2,500 yen on a Japan-Korea ticket to 25,000 yen on a Japan-U.S. ticket per person per sector flown, on tickets purchased in Japan.

This level of surcharge will be applied to all international passenger tickets issued between February 1, 2012 and March 31, 2012.

doesn't matter if no business BOJ is there to help them.

I'm glad to hear this news. It would encourage people use airplane and go on a trip. I would like to go overseas if there will be no increasing of international fare fuel surcharge. It would help an economic recovery and reconstruction of JAL management I guess.

Bull. They wanted to add ¥70,000 to my ticket to go to WPB in Florida.

That's utter BS! If you want to go to Europe or the US the fuel surcharge is actually more than the ticket in some cases (BTW, they're advertising ticket discounts as a response to the price-gouging in fuel surcharges). Set minimum cost for an overseas trip (save some trips to Korea where it's 35,000 yen) is 50,000 yen in fuel surcharge alone, with more remote nations outside of Asia being up to 80,000 yen or so, per person.

So, of COURSE they're going to keep the prices jacked up. Next they'll simply add the fuel surcharge to the ticket cost, call that the ticket cost, then claim they have to add a fuel surcharge on top of it.
