The New Color-Coded Fuel Surcharges On Award Tickets Master Thread! I hate paying huge BS fees on free tickets.  These fees can be as high as $300, $400, or even $800 on a ticket!
Avoid accumulating miles on airlines that charge these fees and hopefully they'll see the errors of the their ways...
Just recently, South African and SAS has ditched their fuel surcharges on award tickets, hopefully more will follow!  It's just a poor way to reward loyalty and is a dishonest business practice.

If anyone would like to volunteer to help categorize more airlines that would be great!

Lime (2 program): Does not charge a fuel surcharge for their own or for partner flights except for when flying on select partners.

El Al 787 Dreamliner Master Thread I just came across this http://www.ch-aviation.com/portal/news/54058-el-al-eyes-late-3q17-incl-debut-for-b787s, which made me give a curious peek at the availability in Sep from TLV to LAX and to see what aircraft is showing. All the flights (LY5) are still showing the 772, but I came across this 1 "fake flight" (which is obviously just some sort of test being that it is on Shabbos and labeled LY555 (instead of 5) and showing 0 availability), and it's operated by a 787-9.

From the highest fare class being C, something tells me they may have taken Dan's advice.......

Re: RIP/BDE Master Thread
The person in the darn car takes the kid out. Full stop. Miscommunication? WTAH?

So you come out firing on a sensitive story, and when you get confronted to get your facts straight and read the actual story, you just double down without reading the story? Sit down.

Excerpt from the story I posted:


At that point, there was a miscommunication about whether the toddlerís mother or father would bring the toddler in from the car, the source said.
