Lowest EX Europe A380 surcharge & tax

Hi All,

Looking to use my miles on 3 business class tickets to Dubai leaving from London or other European city.

London taxes/ charges are GBP 1400
Dublin taxes/ charges are EUR 1,067.28 - but no A380


Anybody seen cheaper fees/ surcharges from Europe please?

Any help is appreciated

Have a look at AMS perhaps, the surcharge is EK's choice not a government charge so that one can be hard to predict

At that price you might be able to buy Economy Class tickets and upgrade them for less. Save some miles for another day.

I regularly use AMS as a gateway to LGW (or LHR) as it is significantly cheaper (in J, ex CPT). Then an award ticket to LGW for 4000 Avios plus 17.50 (one way). Ok, you miss out on the CD in London (and the lounge in AMS is not that good), but a saving of ZAR 6000 ( 360) buys a lot of taxi service.

YQ was 570 plus other local taxes. That was a return.
