Hi, just booked 4 pax DXB-ATH in business via qantas...

Taxes were $600 AUD each for a 5 hour flight!!!!  That is more expensive than buying the ticket in economy including the taxes.  The old theory of taxes being constant, just double or triple points based on economy/business/first clearly isnt happening here.  This is extortionate and I cant understand it at all - am that stunned thinking of raising with ACCC.

I'm lost here. If the taxes were so much, why did you book? Surely your outrage couldn't have been so bad if you continued to book

QF isn't cheap on taxes, but $600 each does sound steep... almost like there is a problem.


Have you called QF to check this?
