It is with tremendous delight that I can announce that Icelandair has dropped the fuel surcharges that it has levied on their airfares.
This, presumably in response to the huge outcry from the travelling public, and blogs like this one.
Effective immediately, they are dropping their surcharge for flights between Iceland and Europe from £68.50 to £60. This exceptional recognition of the price of aviation fuel, now down over 40% from this time last year, shows exactly what a myth the carriers are perpetrating with this farcical levy.
Be honest, airlines, and put the cost of doing business into the fare, and don't hide it in a miscellany of "Fees, taxes and service charges"
