(not an article)

Lufthansa a Star Alliance Member, announced that load factor increased 2.6% in March, however that was smaller than the 3.5% increase in February.

The drop was because the airline did not get the capacity right. Traffic was down 11.8 per cent year-on-year in March, against a 13.6 per cent cut in capacity.

Analysts believe that Lufthansa is finding it hard to fill up seats because it's trying to protect yields.

More information at the Financial Times website

Most negative news are already included in share prices of LH.
Well I'm sure glad LH is a close SQ partner..*ggg*...maybe after SQ's worldwide takeover of civil aviation, they grant LH a nice warm and cozy place in their group structure, where there's no Ryanair or any such bad boys to say foul words to the crane people.

have a nice day anyway

I know it's only VfB but I like it!
