I priced out once an infant on Economy using AA miles for $750.
That's ridiculous!!
Wow, on what routing?

Thanks it's not relevant anymore, because that person purchased rather a regular flight already, since he couldn't get any savings on miles.
It was around pesach season, leaving 3 days before and returning 3 days after.

I don't get it, why would the taxes be so high? It should be 10% of the lowest coach fare offered at the time?

You are not the only one.
They rep couldn't explain it to me either.
Even if they'll charge 10% of the miles based on the 3cpm rate + 10% of the fare it will still not come out that high.

I would've escalated it to someone for a breakdown as that sounds like a calculation error to me.

And I've also had managers recheck with the rate desk for a breakdown, and then had the taxes dramatically lowered.  Don't just take what you're told without asking for an accounting.
