Came across this article today - interesting discussion I think about 2 different approaches to 'fuel fines': Airline fuel surcharges may decrease, but will the ticket price? - Business - CBC News

This probably won't surprise any of us:

When searching for flights in our example above, a flight from Toronto to Barcelona, we found seven different total ticket prices on the same day in the same fare option category, out of 15 choices.

Since there was no non-stop on the route at that time of year, fuel costs could vary from one routing to another. But the fuel surcharge was the same for all the flights.

Next spring, Air Canada will resumes its Toronto-Barcelona non-stop service, which should require less fuel, but for those booking today the fuel surcharge remains the same, while the total ticket price drops
