Default Flight Costs/Fuel Surcharges Down?

Ensconced now in Toronto and taking a trip home in March so have been checking flights often over the past few weeks. With the nonsensical one-way flight charges I find myself booking another return from London > Toronto > London with the return to the UK far off into the future knowing I'll have to pay to change it I'll be getting home on the return leg of the flight I booked to come out here.

Anyway, cost for a flight (LHR>YYZ 13th March, YYZ>LHR 22nd March) with BA/AC/AF in the past month on has averaged out at about CAD $950+ with maybe $30 saved if I bite the bullet and do flight pong with the American lines and see a few airports in the states on my way there and back.

Looking tonight though it's way down to $669.58. Does anyone know what happened? And if its due to change back anytime soon?!

Checked costs through BAA's website at http://www.baa.com/ originally cos they're cheap and you can link to some good car hire deals but opodo, kayak et al are offering similar rates too.

Any clues?

I checked on Air Canada a couple of days ago and it seems that have reduced their fuel surcharge quite a bit. Its anyones guess as to how long it will stay like that though...

I guess it depends on how far ahead they have hedged. The basic seat prices seem to change little. I had an email offer from them a couple of days ago offering "cheap" tickets for travel up to the end of next year.
