    I booked a business class (I bucket) yesterday on SQ and TG. I originally booked a simple round trip online, then called to add an open jaw (arriving BKK, departing HKT) and a stopover in HKG on the return.They advised me of an additional $24 in "airfare", which I paid immediately, of course.

    Here is the breakdown from the original booking:

    Fare Breakdown
    Airfare: 0.00 USD
    U.S. Customs User Fee: 5.50
    U.S. Immigration User Fee: 7.00
    U.S. APHIS User Fee: 5.00
    September 11th Security Fee: 2.50
    Thailand Passenger Service Charge: 22.20
    Per Person Total: 42.20 USD

    eTicket Total: 42.20 USD

    and here is the breakdown after I made the changes:

    Fare Breakdown
    Airfare: 8.50 USD
    U.S. Customs User Fee: 5.50
    U.S. Immigration User Fee: 7.00
    U.S. APHIS User Fee: 5.00
    September 11th Security Fee: 2.50
    Hong Kong Airport Passenger Departure Tax: 15.50
    Thailand Passenger Service Charge: 22.20
    Per Person Total: 66.20 USD

    eTicket Total: 66.20 USD


    I understand the new $15.50 Hong Kong tax is due to the stopover. But what is the $8.50 airfare charge??
