    LHR connection question.

    For the international travelers out there; when flying out of LHR the departure taxes are sky high but it is my understanding that when connecting those fees are reduced. Anyone know exactly how much they are reduced? Thanks for the info

    When you arrive at LHR, show the ticket counter agent or gate agent (if you were lucky enough to get on the purple transfer bus) your boarding pass stub from your previous flight and tell them you are a D1T/D2T/D3T passenger - make sure you emphasize where you came in from and say the word THROUGH! They will make the edit in your PNR that waives the departure tax, and place you on the standby list as a D-whatever through passenger (you can't do this by jetnet). You can come into LHR by ID90, ZED, Positive Space/Purchased ticket. I've heard employees have also had this done by coming in from other area airports, train and bus too.

    when you buy the zed or id90 the tax is already charged to you and you have paid for it when you get your tickets. YOU save the boarding passes and ticket receipts, when you return states side you send all the boarding passes and ticket receipts to NRSA via mail (make copies). They will refund the connection taxes.

    Yep, it is the sad reality of working at AMR. But look on the bright side, after 5 years you can look forward to free coach (still have to pay for the F/J seat) on that 14 hour JFK-NRT flight, yippy!
