United Kingdom Air Passenger Duty APD (GB)
$101.80
United Kingdom Passenger Service Charge Departures (UB)
$26.90

breakdown on ITA
Yes, UK taxes.
Don't have enough miles in my M&M account to see the pricing with LH, I would assume the same? I do see they have J fare for 52k which I would take if there's not insane taxes on this route, vs cash price of 430$ Non stop.

 Would need to call tom after 8am to verify.

Just called they said $294 in taxes, so scrap that idea. $600 in taxes for 2, aside for 104K. Any other partners that I can book without this hefty YQ?

It's not YQ. If you make your own stopover in a nearby country...

So where am I looking? United has to fly that route as well.

Not sure if this is common knowledge or not, but figured I'd post.

I just booked an economy award ticket on United - flight is a TAP flight. After I booked, I went to the TAP website to choose seats, and it allowed me to choose a seat in the preferred section for both legs of the flight, for free (although the seat map shows that those seats should incur an extra charge).

I called TAP to ask about that, as I didnít want to be charged a fee when I check in at the airport, and they said that because it was booked with miles, those preferred seats can be reserved at no extra cost.

Was just doing a couple of searches and it seems SQ award space is showing up again.

Waiting for them to add the same from EWR
Unlikely. Tons of tech traffic from SFO. Plus they cancelled GUM-HKG to make it happen.
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

Is the fully dynamic pricing in place already? I saw 270k for one way in J NYC-TLV today. I thought the max is 180k until November?

Ah. Definitely not seeing any lower pricing on any dates. What a sham. Delta has 30k roundtrip to Europe on off season dates. United will only be (much) more expensive than before. No promises of occasional cheaper pricing internationally.

Do the Chase UA cards waive the $75 close-in fee for non-elites?

Only the Club card (with a $450 AF) not the explorer
