    Am planning to book reward tickets tomrw, in the past I hadnt paid much attention the yx taxes, figured that I'm still ahead of the game regardless. But have noticed on FT people citing different YX taxes for the same fares based on them talking to different people. Does anyone from experience know what are the most tax efficient airports to fly when traveling tatl to europe?

    I know its a vague question, but wondering if anyone has any insight.

    Not sure the most tax efficient but LHR is the worst.

    Most airports are much of a muchness, it is the national taxes and airline YQ which make the difference. LHR and the UK are the places to avoid most of all though.

    DUB is a good departure airport in terms of taxes.. but when flying into europe it's more the airline YQ you should be worrying about!

    One way awards are a great way to get around some of the heavy departure taxes (e.g. UK APD etc) for the tatl flight out of europe!
