Lufthansa Offering Cheap Oneway Fares

sadly only in German...

Anyway, the message of the article is that Lufthansa is starting to offer cheap oneway fares on domestic routes. Till now you had to pay for a full flexible Y ticket if you wanted to fly LH oneway, but under the pressure of the LCC's LH is dropping this strategy. From Friday evening till Sunday evening there is a restricted number of seats for 59€+10€ TSC available on each LH Domestic flight.

Generally a good thing, but the restriction on the weekend and on domestic flights is a bit annoying IMO. Nevertheless clearly a smart move into the right direction

In theory, it's a good thing - but in practice, those seats will be almost impossible to get: LH, once again, chose to make those fares "available" for seats booked in T-class, a booking class that already barely ever was available - and it won't get better now.

To me, this looks a lot like a "let's get the price into the fare displays but not make seats available" thing...
