Taxes on Domestic USA DL Flight Issued by KE?
Recently ticketed an itinerary with KE Skypass miles for a domestic DL itinerary:
Outbound: LGA-DTW-TVC (less than 1 hr connection at DTW)
Inbound: TVC-DTW (1 day Stopver) – JFK
Went through it with the KE phone agent and the mileage required priced out correctly (25k), but agent said taxes for the ticket would be $22.40 instead of $11.20 because you have to pay $5.60 per segment. I’ve never heard this before, so asked to speak to supervisor, and supervisor said the same thing.
It’s only an $11 difference so i’m not too broken up about it, but what gives? Have never encountered this before. Anyone have any thoughts on this?
Well, it’s not really per segment, but I think it’s because of how long your connection is on the return. The cap is $11.60 per trip, but if the connection is over 4 hours the counter resets it as a new trip.

If that were the case though, wouldn’t the taxes price out to $16.80? $5.60 for outbound plus $11.20 ($5.60 x 2 because stopover is causing ticket to be taxed as two separate tickets)?
