    I had this on my blog this afternoon, but thought to add it here too.
    In a press release today, Lufthansa announced that effective October 31, 2011 any fares that it advertises through its website, email subscriptions, facebook and twitter channels will be quoted as a round trip and inclusive of taxes.
    This will be a welcome change. Right now, the fare advertisings are based on a one way fare, not including taxes. This led to the fares looking very low if one initially assumed that to be a round trip fare.
    Glad they’re doing this. Quoting fares as Round Trips including taxes will be a welcome change for Lufthansa fare watchers!

    Thanks for the update! I think they've already done this in countries which required them to display fares inclusive of taxes, but glad to know it's now deployed everywhere.

    full and "fare" disclosure is always a good thing. At least they dont have to issue a prospectus each time........
