Just flew from CDG to MSP last week on DL/NW on 767 and the service was excellent. Not so excellent was the taxes and fees piled on by the CDG airport. The fare was free on the part of DL/NW from the US to CDG and also on the return.
The taxes and fees were $65.00 by the French government PLUS another $65.00 Luxury tax because I was flying C class. Paid a total of $130.00 to the French for this ow trip. I believe that the French and the English are the only countries charging this Luxury tax.
Seems a bit excessive to me . Can anyone explain the logic of this from the French viewpoint?
