Surcharges on Aeroplan award tickets can be significant. They consist of various items such as fuel surcharges, sundry charges (such as for security, facilities and passengers), taxes (HST in Canada, airport taxes etc.) and other smaller fees (e.g. airport fees). The final cost of all surcharges is also dependent on which airlines are being used and how many legs the itinerary has. The most significant cost is usually the fuel surcharge. Trans-oceanic flights usually incur several hundreds of dollars in surcharges.

Fuel surcharges do not apply to all Star Alliance airlines, the following carriers incur a fuel surcharge when booking through Aerolpan: Air Canada, Adria, Asiana, Austrian, LOT Polish, Lufthansa, TAP Portugal, THAI.

Delta flights do not incur fuel surcharges. Generally, flights originating in the USA do not have fuel surcharges broken out. But there are some exceptions such as Aeroflot (SU) and Air Europa (UX) to Europe as well as China Airlines (CI), China Southern (CZ) and China Eastern (MU), these airlines all charge significant YQ.

Korean Air Lines (KE) and Virgin Australia (DJ) are good options for the Pacific rim. Aerolíneas Argentinas (AR) and AeroMéxico (AM) are good choice for Latin America. To avoid fuel surcharges to Europe, use KLM (KL), Air France (AF),  and Alitalia (AZ).

The Flying Blue award rates displayed on milez.biz correspond to the "starting from" rates as published on the Flying Blue Miles Price Estimator. As such they represent the minimum award rate for the itinerary.

Surcharges on Flying Blue award tickets are generally significant. They consist of various items such as fuel surcharges, charges for security or facilities, and taxes and other smaller fees. The final cost of all surcharges is also dependent on which airlines are being used and what the destinations are (some countries do not allow fuel surcharges). The most significant cost is usually the fuel surcharge, which can be 2x as much as the taxes. Trans-continental flights usually incur several hundreds of Euros in surcharges. Inter-European flights sometimes have surcharges that are as much as an all-in flight paid in cash.The surcharges are the same across all booking classes.

A notable exception are Delta flights originating in the USA, fuel surcharges are not broken out on these flights.

Fuel surcharges (YQ) are added for most international itineraries on most partner airlines. However, surcharges vary from airline to airline, for example Asiana Airlines (OZ) surcharges are lower than others such as Lufthansa (LH). No surcharges are collected if you redeem Aegean miles to travel on Air New Zealand (NZ) departing from New Zealand or on flights within the USA/Canada/Mexico on UA/US/AC.

Miles & More adds fuel surcharges and other fees to the miles required for an award ticket. These fees can be prohibitively expensive.General agreement seems to be that award flights in business and first class are still good bargains, whereas award flights in economy class can sometimes be more expensive than all-in tickets purchased for cash.

It is worth looking for Star Alliance flights operated by American or Brazilian airlines as they may not have fuel surcharges. LOT Polish flights do not incur a fuel surcharge.

Be aware of some of the exceptions to the zone-to-zone award rates! If origin and destination of the award ticket are in the same zone, transit through another zone will incur additional redemption charges.

One way flight awards with Miles & more are 50% of the round trip rates. They are rounded down to the next 1,000-mile threshold.
