Here’s How To Figure Out The Taxes/Fees (Fuel Surcharges Really)
Just use matrix.itasoftware.com to search for the QR flights on your chosen city pair. Choose business or economy depending of your cabin. Then you can find all the add-ons that are not on the fare component itself. Those are the taxes/fees that Qatar collects. The biggest one always is the fuel surcharge (YQ or YR). It is $162.10 for DOH-PER segment in business.
These Easy Deals are very good for passengers either originating or terminating in Doha. Qatar charges for point to point so you can save something on award trips that incorporate some of the flights that are on sale. Remember that you need to register for this award promo at least 24 hours before making the booking.
