I have always wanted to understand the maths and abbreviations in the fare calculation line:

recent example:

SYD VAX/MEL VALAX Q SYDLAX353.57 2098.77IFX3ZSB1VASYD Q353.57 2098.77IFX3ZSB1 NUC4904.68END ROE1.103025 XFLAX4.5

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

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

Ok thx
so there were no fuel surcharges on this fare

thanks all
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.
