JAL "lowers" business saver fare to US and Europe


Japan Airlines has issued a press release (in Japanese) regarding 28 day advance purchase business saver fare...Starting April 1 2010, the weekday fare will be lowered by 5,000 yen! So how much will you save if you wait till this price cut kicks in?

None! In fact, you will be paying extra if you wait till April 1 to issue your business saver ticket. JAL will raise its fuel surcharge from April 1, the same day the fare is lowered. A one-way fuel surcharge to Europe and North America will increase from 7,000 yen to 10,500 yen. So there will be an increase of 7,000 yen on fuel surcharge on a roundtrip ticket.

So do the math, you will be paying 2,000 yen more per roundtrip ticket if you wait for this "price cut"! Unless you like JAL as much as I do, you shouldn't wait for this at all (ok...I don't know my summer travel schedule yet...that's another reason I am waiting other than I want to pay extra :P)
