JAL to lower the fuel surcharge from October 1 2011


As expected, Japan Airlines (JAL) will lower its fuel surcharge from October 1 2011 as the two month average jet fuel price at Singapore has dropped to USD128.02. Therefore, the fuel surcharge for tickets issued between October 1 and November 30 2011 will be using zone G in the fuel surcharge table. In other words, back to May and June 2011's fuel surcharge level. For a one-way Asia-US ticket, fuel surcharge will drop from USD 335 to USD 288. So hold your tickets and wait till Oct 1 to ticket them if you can (well sometimes it's hard to do that especially if JAL kept canceling your upgrade every 5 days :p)

For more details, you can refer to JAL press release (Japanese, English)
