You are correct, you have to pay the surcharges.

As to false advertising - I would have to scour the T&C again.

It is certainly misleading since the fuel surcharge is not a tax as they try to imply.

Yeah,
it's costing me $800 to fly my family to Singapore 'free' later on this year.

It's a bit irritating, isn't it.

Yes, it's terribly interesting.

I was recently looking at a QFF award for a DRW-CBR one-way flight. The "free" ticket (18,000 points, I think) had taxes and charges of approx $170.

I then checked Virgin Blue, and could buy a fully paid ticket for $200.

What do you think I did?

I think we are being RIPPED OFF by QF!!!

As a protest after a CNS-DRW-CNS redemption journey in J class last year I made QF explain every last cent in extra charges to me to make the point!

May be worth all of us using some idle moments in QFPs when travelling on reward tickets to ring the reward centre/booking line and ask for a break down of costs on each journey we take...

If that upset at Fuel Fines, it is worth considering a defection to the AA scheme. No Fuel Fines, just genuine taxes

That was due to pressure from the other OneWorld Airlines for them to follow suite. When it comes to awards, the pressure comes from the competitive USA market for FF programs, so its unlikely to change in a hurry (I hope).
