This is sort of interesting and horrifying at the same time.
For those of us who used to enjoy cheapo airfare, this is a good indication that the party is over.
International Airline Ticket Fuel Surcharge Report
A few examples:

The average fuel surcharge for travel originating from the U.S. (top 22 hubs noted later) to the top 41 transoceanic (Atlantic, Pacific) non-stop destinations by daily available seats:

* Trans-Atlantic average Fuel Surcharge: $342 (average of 452,000 airfares)
* Trans-Pacific average Fuel Surcharge: $391 (average of 168,000 airfares)
* Transoceanic average Fuel Surcharge: $349 (closer to trans-Atlantic because of number of airfares sample higher for Atlantic)
