Reward Flight Saver not working for flights later in the year

    I am trying to price up Avios return flights with a Reward Flight saver and it is not working for flights later in the year, with much higher taxes and fees than usual. The Reward Flight Saver symbol is showing against the flights (I regularly earn plenty of Avios so is not to do with that):

    Example: LON – ZRH return in July:
    62500 Avios + £ 160.10
    59500 Avios + £ 180.10
    50000 Avios + £ 220.10
    36500 Avios + £ 260.10
    27500 Avios + £ 350.10
    22000 Avios + £ 430.10

    However, for flights in January, the correct Reward flight saver taxes are showing.

    just curious – as this seems to be the most relevent thread around.

    is there RFS for F? I’ve paid 1400 for a US bound 241 in F last month (non RFS) but today i checked it’s 800 for J(241)… I wonder if that’s cuz F has no RFS or the person booking me in messed up

    There hasn’t been a reduction in surcharges, there is simply now sometimes the option to pay them with Avios.
