AA vs CX Taxes on DONE4

How would the taxes compare

1) CX issued DONE4 (20 coupons) CMB - ... - CMB

vs

2) AA issued DONE4 (20 coupons) BKK- ...- BKK?

Rough difference will do.

I've tried getting the answer to 1) from Cathay but they got it completely wrong and rather than go through that again I though you might know. Thanks!

Taxes are not surcharges

Taxes should be exactly the same (as Consolidated travel above if its up to date)
Fuel surcharges do vary between carrires. The only way to find out is ask them.

Spot on. Sorry, I meant fuel surcharges I guess - I read somewhere that AA was cheaper than CX in this respect. Is there an email address for the AA RTW desk?

To answer my own question I've just found this site http://www.globaltravel.com.sg/airline-fuel.php but I'm not sure how to use it. Does it mean for AA issued stock that I only look at the AA part? So, fuel surcharges would be just for flights within and to/from USA (any carrier) and that's it as opposed to CX that charge for every coupon?

The only way to find out is ask them. Its *** hard to know how they work it out on a multi segment multi carrier ticket.

If you are just looking for the difference, just check the fuel charges for AA & CX, should be open information or atleast easily obtained from the airlines. x USD for short segment, y USD for longhaul etc...

Reserve around 6-10% for the taxes and you are not too much off.

The link I pasted above also has (pretty current) surcharges listed by airline. Just requires some time with a calculator.
