    I know this article is old and we have discussed fuel surcharges many times but for the benefit of anyone who has not read the article here it is.

    Based on their criteria, I expect the fuel charges are a permanent fixture :(.

    LAN airlines are probably the most transparent airlines in terms of their implementation of fuel surcharges

    OK, didn't realise that it was in Spanish. I must have a cookie set somewhere from the first time I went to the LAN site and selected my country/language, because it comes up in English on my PC. The other option would be to go to the www.lan.com, and the fuel surcharge link can be accessed from towards the bottom of the home page.

    Came up in English for me, so perhaps I have a cookie set as well.

    Ninguna cookie para mí, tan triste... :cry:

    (Actually, I'm using firefox 1.5.0.3, have been doing so for only a week and all cookie bets seem to be off)

    Surcharge en Ruta Internacional

    Para el caso de Rutas Internacionales, el valor del Fuel Surcharge está indexado al comportamiento del precio de mercado del petróleo... :(



    It is weird when you go back to home page and select other countries the web site reverts to English.

    Why is that wierd. Chileans (presumably the majority of LA's pax) speak Spanish to makes sense to default to that. Many pax of other countries served by LA speak English so makes sense to have that as second option.
