Question. If the cost of diesel today was the same as the day you booked your long range trip and you were asked to pay a fuel surcharge for what was called "an alrming increase in fuel", what would you do? a) Deduct $$$ from crew tip just because you think it's BS. b) Pay it becasue it it what it is. Seems every time I jump on a long range trip, there is a fuel surcharge. I am paying it of course because I have no choice, the trip is next week. I guess that if we can afford the initial cost of the trip, whats another $100.00 bucks, right?
