    Hi, just wanting to ask this.
    If flying to MEL-LHR on QF9 or QF387 would I be paying the fuel surcharge only once each way, as opposed to flying from BNE on two different flight numbers which definately has 2 surcharges.

    Simple answer is one flight number, one fuel surcharge. Two flight numbers, two fuel surcharges.

    So from Brisbane, for return fares, fuel surcharges are
    BNE-MEL-LHR = $26+ $75 + $75 + $26 = $202
    BNE-SIN-LHR = $75 + $75 + $75 + $75 = $300
    MEL-LHR-MEL (via SIN of course) = $75 +$75 = $150!

    Thanks. That is what I thought, but was double checking.

    Note that on Air NZ the through flights (one flight number) from Aust/NZ to London get a special higher surcharge so you cant "benefit" in this way. But then for Air NZ the through traffic on this route is a significant % of international travel - likely more so than for QF.
