What are you going to do with these Virgin miles? AFAIK Virgin charges fairly high fuel surcharges (http://www.dansdeals.com/forums/index.php?topic=1592.0) on all awards, including partners.

do they charge a fuel surcharge on other airlines as well?

Look at the page I linked to, last line of the first post.

sometimes the mile game messes with our heads. stop comparing and some might consider a ow upper class tick to london for $200 bucks all in a pretty good deal.

Are YQ only $200?

Even if miles are all valued at 1:1 vs other programs (which they are obviously not, due to award charts, availability etc), fuel surcharges are yet another factor when estimating the value of miles. All I'm saying is not all 50k signup bonus CCs are created equal.
