    A deal to take your breath away, fine print to put it back

    Here is an older article from LA Times. We have talked about it so much but I cannot wait for the day when wysiwyg with airfares. This is clearly false advertising, should be more fines like Air NZ, yet technicalities allow the practice to continue.

    I'm certainly no advertising expert but you'd think that QF could gain some good publicity by promoting all-inclusive fares - e.g. "our advertised fares are all you have to pay - no additional taxes or surcharges..." etc. People want to know what the real cost is. I think they do themselves a disservice they way it is currently done. And it drags down their website bandwidth because people like me have to go 90% of the way through the online booking engine to check a price.
