Award Redemption How much are fuel surchanges on Asia Mile redemption

    Hi Lucky - I'm looking at doing an award redemption from SFO-BNE using Asia Miles. I don't currently have the miles in my account but before I transfer I'd like to know how much the taxes and fees are for the redemption. Unfortunately when booking online when you find an available award it says how much it costs in miles but does not include the taxes and fees until you have the miles in your account. Do you know approximately how much Cathay Pacific is charging in fees for awards on their own metal? I found this chart but I don't know how accurate it is or if it even applies to award flights, and I can't find any other good source of information on the topic.

    Asia Miles applies fuel surcharges to all redemptions, but on an Asia to Australia flight they're going to be relatively low. I'd guess ~$200 all-in for the various surcharges, taxes, and airport fees.
