Our friend tker was kind enough to start a thread on the transition of USAir, post merger, from Star Alliance to OneWorld. Having only really experienced the Star Alliance in general and USAir in particular, I have limited experience with non-U.S. carriers for award travel. Mrs. Pained and I are planning to enjoy visits to Europe, Asia, Australia, and South America over the next few years. Our other friend, californian , shared the nightmare of a $1000 charge from British Airways on an award ticket to Scandinavia. Man, that's steep!!


My question....


What airlines have joined British Airways in charging outrageous surcharges, fees and/or taxes on award travel?  Please, share your knowledge and experiences.
