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!
