Hi,
I was intrigued with the Qantas mile transfer bonus from Citi TYP.  Looking to fly between US and Europe this spring.  Before transferring, I was checking to see how much taxes/fees/fuel surcharges would be on an award tickets operated by BA and AA.  I have 0 miles in my account today.  The furthest I can get on qantas.com is to select the flight, view the required amount of points, then I get this:

Please review the following items

You don’t have enough points. Here’s some options:
• Borrow points via family transfersThis will open a new tab or window in your browser. or use top up pointsThis will open a new tab or window in your browser. to purchase the points you need.
• Use a mix of points and cash to book a flight via Points Plus Pay - Flights, simply search hereThis will open a new tab or window in your browser. and select “Points, money or both”. Min 5,000 points required.
• Find another destination within your balance via the find flights link below. Need inspiration? Get it via our interactive flight search map hereThis will open a new tab or window in your browser..
Am I missing something?  Is there a way to get that info without transferring over the required miles OR without calling Qantas?

Answered my own question.  Looks like there's no way to do it on Qantas' site unless you have the required miles.  Otherwise use ITA to find the YQ:

Carrier-imposed surcharge (YQ)
€269.00

Someone please correct me if I'm wrong.

Wow thank you very much for the offer.  I ended up booking with UA instead and will use TYP for something else.  Thanks again!
