    Air Canada is offering some low fares with no fuel surcharges in an ad in today's Montreal Gazette. I can't find specific mention of it on their website, but there may be some other good rates available for other cities. Travel dates go as far as 30 September 2012. Book by October 30.

    Sample rates (one-way Tango):

    YUL-YYZ $49
    YUL-YVR $239

    There are a half dozen fares shown on the ad.

    Are you sure there are no fuel surcharges?

    I saw a similar ad in a Toronto paper and while underneath the prices it said no fuel surcharges I read that as not included in the price on the page.

    I thought the fine print at the bottom of the ad did mention fuel surcharge.

    Do not have the paper now so cannot say for sure.

    Maybe I misread it?

    Hmm... It says "No fuel surcharge" clearly in the ad. Looking at Nov 17, YUL-YYZ shows a fare of $49 on AC407. I don't see the breakdown of surcharges. Am I looking in the wrong place?

    If you click through on the "Surcharges" link on the line next to the $36 it specifically states:

    Fuel Surcharges: For travel within Canada and between Canada and the United-States, fuel surcharges are now included in the ticket price. For International travel, fuel surcharges vary according to destination.

    I thought that this has been their policy for quite a while. So, $49 is a great base fare the no fuel surcharge isn't anything new. Show me a YYZ-LGW flight with no fuel surcharge and I'll get excited.

    So if its an additional line item (ie. Surcharge) in the finalized billing.....so why are they advertising "No Fuel Surcharges"

    The way I read is...if there's no fuel surcharges then the $36 shouldn't be there or be clarified with whatever that surcharge is.

    Ah, so the no fuel surcharge ad is like the one offering cholsterol-free water?

    In that case, sorry for the excessive optimism this morning.
