RECENT OIL PRICE DROP
Japan Airlines is first to announce a fuel surcharge for ticket purchases on/after February 1, 2015. Their fuel surcharge on Japan tickets will be dropped from $259 to $173 ($86 one-way or $172 round-trip savings). As the fuel surcharge is a very important revenue source for many airlines, they may raise the base fare or limit the inventories for low fares. You must be aware that your base fare may go up by waiting the fuel surcharge to be dropped. If you feel that your ticket price (including tax and surcharge) is reasonable, that would be the best time to purchase your ticket!
