A while ago I wanted to calculate the caused CO2 emissions by my flights, I used two different calculators and obtained two totally different values.

I calculated both times a single flight from Frankfurt to Lisbon.

calculator 1 from the International Civil Aviation Organization: 177 kg CO2

calculator 2 from myclimate.org1. 376 kg CO2

Anyone has an idea why they get to so different results? 

A possibility would be to ask Lufthansa, because they are official partner with myclimate but at the bottom of their tickets they wright the CO2 emissions of ICAO.
