SAA hikes fuel levies on tickets
Johannesburg - South African Airways (SAA) has announced an increase in the fuel surcharges ranging between $5 (R35) and $30 (R212) per leg/sector and applies to tickets issued on or after January 27 2011 on most of SAA's routes in both economy and business class cabins.
In SAA's domestic market, the surcharge increases by $5 per leg and in some of the international routes, the surcharge increases by up to $30, the airline said.
SAA is a ripoff in any way.
These fuel surcharges are merely being passed on by SAA to the consumer. The cause of the problem are those that ultimately gain from these surcharges.
The airlines charged a fuel surcharge when the oil price was $150 per barrel but did not reduce them when the oil price dropped to $40 per barrel and now want to charge another surcharge. This is blatant theft
Nothing ever drops in price, they are just a bunch of thieves. The problem is that these surcharges go to enable to give SAA's top brass the ability to give their mates free flights world wide.
