Credit card fees should be a % figure, not a set $ figure
They should only be allowed to be the actual cost of accepting the credit card
EG 1.1% for Visa/MC, 1.8% for Amex etc etc
Even then I am not a fan of the fees at all
Me either. I'm a firm believer in that the (hidden) costs associated in handeling cash for a large organisation would outweigh the 0.XX% direct charge by a bank to electronically process a CC transaction!
What the no news report doesn't point out is that the $7.70 domestic charge is per passenger
Qantas charges $7.70 to use a credit card to book domestic flights and $30 for international flights. The fees are charged per passenger per ticket regardless of whether the ticket is one-way or return.
How about other airlines per passenger per sector?What the no news report doesn't point out is that the $7.70 domestic charge is per passenger - not per credit card transaction. If you pay by cc for 4 passengers on one flight in one transaction you pay $7.70 x 4. How is that justified, QF?
