    Millions of air passengers face being charged hundreds of pounds in taxes and fees after a change to a major loyalty scheme offering so-called 'free flights'.

    The overhaul of the popular Airmiles reward programme means customers claiming flights with their miles will have to pay all air and fuel taxes on their trips.
    The change could add up to £300 to the cost of flights to New York, £420 for a trip to Tokyo and as much as £600 to Australia flights.
