    Ok thanks.

    Any more info about the rest especially the 353.57 and 2098.77

    I gather NUC 4904.68 x ROE 1.03025 = cost of total airfare which is correct

    353.57+2098.77+353.57+2098.77=4904.68

    Thank you but there seem to be 4 fares added to final fare however there are only 3 sectors on the fare.

    also whats the xflax 4.5. Is it the airport at turnaround point? In this case lax ???

    Q= point of termination of itinerary leg
    END =??

    XF is the security charge at LAX usd4.50
    The Q is the surcharges ( fuel ) on top of the fare of NUC2098.77 each way

    There were two fuelsurcharges, 2 x 353.57 as shown by the "Q SYDLAX353.57" and "Q353.57". One each direction for SYD-LAX and LAX-SYD.

    FYI:
    the X/MEL indicates that you were transiting in Melbourne but the fare is counted as a SYD-LAX and not charged for going via MEL; as MEL is a valid transit point where the fare doesn't need to be broken in to a domestic leg followed by the international leg.
