A note regarding the tax & surcharges (cash portion) I paid through BAís website was approx. £254 (PE-> CW). BA agent on the phone confirmed me if I change the booking, I will have to pay approx £650 (£400 difference). Thatís a big difference that I am not able to understand how they recalculated.

you are presumably also paying the change fee which applies for the underlying WTP fare?

no change fee applicable for GGL I think, as I used avios for PE and upgrade with GUF1 to CW.

My guess is that I was charged for only PE tax and surcharges £254, and in reality I should be charged for CW £650. Maybe I can verify via ITAMATRIX to find out the actual difference.
I think my point is I booked this tkt online with avios and guf1 at the same time, thatís why it was miscalculated. And if you book a return HKG-LHR-LHR with avios and guf1/2, the tax & surcharges would be less than the actual amount an BA agent would tell you over the phone.

WTP taxes/fees/charges for HKG-LHR-HKG is about £250. In CW it is about the same (HKD 2606).

many thanks! I didnít expect/know HKD 2606 is for a CW redemption. I always thought LHR is very high in APD along with BAís surcharges.
