ANA Surcharges Reduced To $1 Per Leg, Potentially Saving Hundreds

13

ANA has made a great improvement when booking award flights as they’re now charging only $1 per leg on many routes.

On many ANA-flown routes, if you book a round trip flight, the surcharge will be $2 if flying directly to and from your destination.

ANA RT direct to Tokyo.

The fee seems to be $1 per leg because if you book a round trip with a layover in each direction, the total surcharges will come to $4.

This is a great improvement as it makes some sweet spots even sweeter because the surcharges sometimes came to $200 or so.

I wonder if they will be adjusting fees for already booked award tickets. In any case, I’ll check with them when I inevitably have to call in to delay my trip again.

I believe ANA will reprice taxes and fees if the ticket has not been used partially, otherwise it will be even exchange.

Is this $1 surcharge only applied to NH flight only? Full surcharge is still imposed on United’s China flights.

Yes, this is only for ANA flights, not partner flights

Thanks. I’ve updated the post to say that this is true on many routes rather than implying that it is true on all routes.

Anybody know if this also applies to RTW tickets? That would be insanely awesome.

No, because to fly RTW you will have to include at least some partners. If the partners you choose impose fuel surcharges then you’ll still have to pay that. See this post for more: https://frequentmiler.boardingarea.com/ana-strengths-and-sweet-spots/

Aah, touche. Guess I read Stephen’s post too quickly and assumed it was for all flights, not just NH metal. Still, a welcome improvement to AMC.
