Routes that do not have fuel surcharges (YQ) when operated by carriers that normally charge YQ:

1. USA-Germany-Other country. If only the Germany-other country segment is on LH it does not have YQ. E.g. DFW-FRA-BLR with TATL on UA and FRA-BLR on LH.
2. USA-Canada-Other country. The USA-Canada segment on AC does not have YQ if the Canada-Other country segment is operated by a carrier that does not charge YQ. E.g. DFW-YYZ-ADD.

$93.75 per ticket for four YYZ-CUN in July. This is much better than the $250 per ticket I paid in the fall.

Same for me! And the taxes charged actually match up to those on a revenue ticket.

My Aeroplan ticket:
Canada Security Charge (CA) .................................................. .....17.00
Canada Goods and Services Tax .................................................. ..1.00
Combined taxes, fees, charges and surcharges for Classic Flight .......... 75.00
Total .................................................. ..................................... 93.00


Sample revenue ticket:
Taxes, Fees and Charges
Canada Airport Improvement Fee SQ ..............................................20.0 0
Air Travellers Security Charge (ATSC) CA ....................................... 17.00
Mexico Intl. Arpt. Departure Tax XD ............................................... 31.08
Canada Goods and Services Tax (GST/HST #10009-2287 RT0001) XG .. 1.00
Mexico Tourism Tax UK .................................................. ............ 23.72
Total .................................................. ..................................... 92.80

Stinger, what's different from your fall tickets? Presumably, the all inclusive "combined taxes" amount?

YYZ(AC)-CMH
15k points + $150.64 in fees and tax.

The only thing that makes this okay is that this flight is often $600 up to $1500 last minute.

They match up as I don't think YQ (fuel surcharge) is charged on some of the revenue MEX routings/ tickets.

If you fly AC it cost more as they charge fuel charges on rewards where as other partners do not.
