I'm eager for the drop in oil prices to translate into lower fuel surcharges when you buy an air ticket. Often the taxes can cost more than the air ticket itself. The airline stocks are doing well due to the savings in fuel and have no incentive to pass the savings to the customer in a booming travel industry. All flights are 90 percent full for the holidays. I'm glad I'm not travelling right now with the packed flights and high season charges. If we want airlines to pass the savings to us we have to stop flying and that doesn't seem likely right now.
