What's the deal with International "taxes and fees"?

Jump to last reply

Just looked at Delta/KLM tickets to AMS. The "fare" is $760 + $562 "taxes and fees" for a total of $1321.

If I booked the EXACT same ticket using my DL miles, the "taxes and fees" are only $62.

Does anyone know why? I looked at the breakout. There is $496 listed as an "International Surcharge".

Why don't they need the surcharge on a mileage ticket?
