Price display (tax/fees) for London to Dubai return:
Your 20,000 Avios on this city pair would be worth just $105.06 as most of the fare are fuel surcharges and other taxes and fees. Paid fare would earn you more TP’s and Avios….
Economy award sale at 50% off sounds great, but isn’t once you factor in those nasty fuel surcharges. It would make sense to redeem Avios IF World Traveler Plus would have been included.
