Re: Airlines now MUST use "all-in-one" pricing.
Change your phrase from "fixed" to uncontrolled. These fees can be changed at a whim with no control by the airline. So "fixed" is the wrong word.
Yes and the fuel surcharge is just another way of allowing them to change the price whenever they want to. Cruise lines do the same thing based on the price of a barrel of crude oil.
Several years ago the steel companies did the same thing. They started a surcharge so they could change the pricing when ever they feel like it. It makes the company feel like they are off the hook for price increases. Ya right.
