Qantas fees and taxes for LAX-SYD-LAX versus AA equivalent.


Thought I would check availability of current QFF 30% off promotion and read some of the examples in the email promotion. Did a double take when I saw LAX-SYD-LAX was  63k points plus US$850 fees and taxes! Yikes.

So…thought would check it out and got the following on

SYD-LAX-SYD on QF11/12 – 63k points plus ~AU$430 taxes…

LAX-SYD-LAX on QF12/11 – 63k points plus ~US$833 taxes – close to what email said

LAX-SYD-LAX on AA73/72 – 90k points plus ~ US$117 taxes – yep…screen printed that!

Putting aside the 30% promotion, US$710 difference in taxes is huge. Can’t comment in the new AA service but that’s a massive difference.
