I received an email from Air Canada yesterday that included the following statement:
“Great news. The fuel surcharge is now included in all our North America fares.”
GREAT news? Who are they trying to kid?
Especially since Westjet announced yesterday afternoon that it will no longer collect one-way fuel surcharges of $20 for short haul, $30 for medium and $45 for longer flights.
On a brighter note, Air Canada did say that they will cancel their fees for the second checked bag on Tango and Tango Plus fares within North America effective September 23rd. That’s a savings of $50 per round-trip flight.
