I haven't looked up the figures but I thought that SYD, NRT and LHR are all high tax places to have stopovers.
LHR will cost them GBP20 that I do not include. NRT I am not sure of. SYD is the start and end, so the only extras the OP will have over my use of MEL is the noise tax. But I am going through MEL three times on my trip, so that adds up, including my 4 x domestic fuel fines.Kiwi Flyer said:I haven't looked up the figures but I thought that SYD, NRT and LHR are all high tax places to have stopovers.
I have verified all the non-airline fees (ie Government and Airport) and am very satisfied all have been included and paid. The ones that I am not able to directly correlate are YQ and YR airline-specific surcharges (fuel fines and insurance charges).Kiwi Flyer said:A couple of RTWs ago I asked for breakdown and got a big listing. Turns out TA missed one off and it was picked up at check in for the relevant leg Lucky I had enough cash on me.
When you arrive at LAX, you will need to go through passport control/immigration and have your finger prints and photo recorded and passport stamped. Then collect you luggage and exit through customs. When you leave through the customs processing exit, look for signs for connecting passengers baggage re-check. Your bags should be tagged to SFO via LAX when you check-in oin BNE, so just leave your bags for re-screening and they will be sent to your connecting flight.holdenvxman said:Im going BNE to SFo via LAX , what happens at LAX in this situation?
YQ is the Qantas Fuel and Insurance surchargeslautray said:From ticket:
=$625.15 x2 persons = $1250.30.
What are the YQ, QK & XT?
I think you are after this:NM said:YQ is the Qantas Fuel and Insurance surcharges
QK is the Noise Levy Tax, being $3.40 for each arrival into SYD or ADL.
XT is "Combines Taxes" and includes government and airport taxes - these are the real taxes and not the fake ones added by the airlines to try to confuse us into blaming the government for the higher fares.
The XT is often broken down further on the ticket receipt with a long line of codes and numbers.
Thats the one:lautray said:I think you are after this:
Can you make heads or tails of this, NM? Which tax is what?
Time to look at the YQ fuel surcharge and see how that was calculated:lautray said:Thanks NM. So I didn't get ripped off (too much)? Will we have to pay anything else at any of the airports or is this all inclusive, regarding any other taxes/charges etc?
