You can get YVR-LGW fares on Air Transat which are similar.
But in total, the cost is $612 for some round trips for some dates in June and July.

I hate when flight companies offer free or amazingly cheap tickets.
There is no such thing as free… With all taxes, extra luggae costs, etc. the price ends up the same…

I don’t. I actually prefer to see the price breakdown, so I know what airports and governments are charging me.

I guess that novice travellers, who aren’t familiar with typical taxes and charges, have an easier time when it’s all included. ITA, Bookingbuddy, and Farecompare—which get recommended here often—include total fares with all taxes and fees when you search airfares.
