KUALA LUMPUR: Malaysia Airlines will increase its domestic fares by an average of 15% for economy class and 25% for business class in two weeks – the first increase for local routes in 14 years.

MAS is increasing its fuel surcharges and imposing a RM14 administration fee for each ticket issued.

The new fuel surcharge for flights within the peninsula and within Sabah and Sarawak is RM20 – a hike of RM5. For flights between the peninsula and Sabah and Sarawak, the surcharge goes up by RM15 to RM51.

This means that for a return flight between Kuala Lumpur and Kota Kinabalu, a passenger could end up paying as much as RM250 extra for an economy class ticket. (Extract from Star 01-08-2006)

I can say that I’m not effected by this because I don’t travel and never used it. Bad news for those who used MAS services. Do they (passengers) have a choice?

Well, the moment when I am in the MAS flight is when someone pay for it! This mean that I don’t have to take out any single cents from my own pocket.
