arent all these surcharges just accounting trickery to enable costs to be moved around and treated differently? it really just boils down airfares being unsustainable at their current deflated levels and the airlines need to increase revenue to get back in the black.
So what is the beat up? I haven't gone through it fare by fare, ( ? 'fair' by 'fair'? ) but the story appears to be recounting reasonably accurately the recent history of QF surcharges and market share.
I'm not saying I like the surcharges, or airline journalism in general, but this story seems to be just telling it like it is and not 'bashing the product'.
Qantas has a habit of laying a few uppercuts on itself though.
Agree this a beat up. But then Qantas are their own worst marketing enemy. Don't charge surcharges for weekends, or extra for DFW - give discounts for travelling midweek. This is a full service airline, not JQ. When will the board sack AJ?
