Delta Adds Fuel Fee to Frequent-Flier Tickets

. . .In the latest fee to hit the airline industry, Delta Air Lines said Friday that it planned to begin charging a fuel surcharge of up to $50 for booking frequent-flier tickets under its awards program.

Delta is not the first airline to charge a fee for previously free tickets, but it is specifically attributing the step to the soaring cost of jet fuel.

The new fee takes effect on tickets booked on or after Aug. 15. Delta will charge a $25 fuel surcharge on tickets booked within the United States, and $50 on tickets booked for travel elsewhere, including the Caribbean, the United States Virgin Islands, Latin America and other international destinations. . .



the MISSING LINK to yet another fee. . .

Yet another reason why I don't regret (a) burning up my SkyMiles over the last couple of years, and (b) ditching Delta except when absolutely necessary (which isn't often).

Delta SkyMiles is a great program.

I've used it for free subscriptions to several magazines.

'Never had enough points to book a flight with before they expired... but I've got a 20 year subscription to Wired.

How about an arrival fee...as in, we have arrived, now it will cost you twenty bucks to get off the plane?

how about just raising the cost of the ticket, instead of adding "fees"?
