Does anyone know if you pay for the taxes/fees if your booking an award ticket on an airline other than OZ? I recalled paying $200 USD for an ICN-SIN OZ and SIN-ICN SQ award ticket this summer. However, I'm not sure if the $200 was for the ICN-SIN segment.
I'm debating an award ticket itinerary on LX F, LH F, LH C (Intra-Europe), and LX C (Intra-Europe).
You pay full taxes include fuel surcharges for star alliance redemption as well as OZ-alone award ticket. Fuel surcharge (YQ) is different by airline. YQ for ICN-SIN is in general $26, and airport taxes are like $50 for two airports, so it will be $100 total. I don't understand why you paid $200. Still you must have received an e-ticket with all details of tax/fee.
