Title: (Update: False Alarm) ANA now charging a fuel surcharge on United flights
Post by: sushimaven on September 09, 2013, 01:09:59 PM
From what I've read here, one of the advantages of using ANA miles to book United travel was that they did not add on hefty fuel surcharges for such flights. I spoke with customer service today regarding booking a flight to Israel and was told that it would cost 60,000 miles (great!) plus $487.07 in fees/charges (not so great). Maybe this was already reported in DDF, but ANA told me they started adding on fuel surcharges about a month ago.

With all that, what are the best options now for using United miles and Amex Membership Rewards to book flights to Israel?

If someone has an ANA account with 60K miles in it please PM me and I'd be happy to do the research.

I guess the ANA customer service rep I spoke to had it all wrong...
