I was just checking out flights FRA-LON, and have come across the following example:
1.) Previously, FRA-LHR on LH was EUR 36 + Tax = EUR 99 total
2.) Now, they write FRA-LHR is EUR 21 + Tax + = EUR 99 total + EUR 15 levy of security charge --> makes a total of about EUR 130
I think this is a great example for a bad practice of an enterprise: The EUR 15, which the ticket has become apparently cheaper (see EUR 21 against , is levied as security charge), while the taxss/fees have apparently changed (probably they themselves increased the taxes/fees with some charges)
A great example for lack of transparency, bad business practice and for trying to make fools out of their formerly loyal clients - where is their code of conduct and their moral..?? they 're-pack' a fee increase in a really mean way while making appear that the ticket has become cheaper..

Be happy with that prize from a mainline carrier putting you right into London's main airport. Biz Class rtn is roughly 920 Euros and full Y over 800, e-tix. Paper even higher.BA might be a few Euros cheaper BD does not serve the route and I doubt that KL or AF are cheaper as you have to change planes either CDG or AMS.
And if you go from HHN to STN, you might even catch a € 0,99 Ryanair cheapo, well, OK getting there and going from costs a but more and if you do not value your own time, its a real steal.

I agree.. with all cumulated costs FR from HHN mostly turns out to be more expansive

Quoting AeroWesty (Reply 5): Why don't you first use a site such as travelocity.com that shows the full price including taxes and fees on the first page, without having to dig through each airline's flights and fares?
I checked another agent (www.skyways.de), who basically gives this complicated breakdown.. moreover, some other agents do so, too.. and research on the airlines' webpage often reveals promotional offers.. hence elaborated research with multiple sources often leads to a better deal..
but advice taken, thanks..! travelocity is indeed quite good on transparency - but not always the cheapest
