I was just browsing through Lufthansas Online fares on their homepage and saw their so called specials.
When entering certain dates the prices show up with about twice or three times the amount of what they say. Why is this ?
e.g. a domestic flight is 130 Euro and when entering dates (weekend) it appears to be like 400 Euros.
Also does anyone know if their flights within Germany do have a minimum stay requirement ? It only says maximum stay is one night.

Most likely it is due to a lack of availability in the particular booking class for that special. Specials may only apply to certain flights as well.

It appears there is no minimum stay - not really possible when you're dealing with 1 day. This would probably only appeal for people who want to go on mileage runs if there were a minimum time, given that it is useless to business pax.
Ask this question at www.flyertalk.com in the Lufthansa Miles & More forum and you'll get some good responses.

Hi B737-700 !
I`m back from FRA now. The trip was ok but a little bit to short, me and Herbman have flown from DUS to FRA at 14.35h (LH021) and back to DUS at 17.40h (LH066). Both flight were operated by a 320-200. The cabin and the check in crew were very unfriendly, but this is normal on LH flights.
Highlights at FRA: Air Algerie 737, LH Cargo 742 Time definite, two Air China 744 and LH`s A 319 LU.
