Let's talk actual dollar amounts. Flights on Qantas from LA or Dallas will cost about $130 more in surcharges, taking the total extra fee to $310. From Australia to Asia or Hawaii, it will set you back $20 more to total $165. If you are planning on using the flying kangaroo for an around-the-world trip, be prepared to dig deep as surcharges to Europe will be the most expensive at $350.
Internal flights get a little more reprieve, but are still hit. Short distances, like under 434 miles, will see a 1.82 AUD increase. The largest price increase is just under $7 for longer flights like trans-cons. Just bear in mind that this is per segment, not one way.
New charges will take effect February 15 for flights taking off after June 30th.
