That rising tide (in the form of taxes) will lead all carriers to raise fares. The EU thinks this will help....
I wrote about the impact on US based carriers in this piece
Yes, it will help to raise fares
LH is doing something that helps though. by burying the ETS tax into their fuel surcharges, that should in theory go into the YQ of a redemption fare, and if you are redeeming from a US based FF program for LH flights, you will avoid paying an ETS tax since YQ is normally not part of the cost.
The title of that article is rather amusing. Of course they are passing it on to their customers. What else would they do to cover this increase of their cost -- take it out of their employees' salaries?
