Re: Lufthansa Group to pull out of Berlin - New York?

There are reasons, why AB lost more than 10€ per passenger. Fact is, loads, especially in Y have been incredibly low at the LH flight. barely more than a 100 passengers on the plane.

It's a perfect route for the A321LR if EW (or U2, or B6 or someone else) gets it.

The 330neo has barely a chance at LH. They plan to fly the LH/LX 343 to 2025, and the same is rumored to be happening to the OS 763/772 with some used 772s replacing the oldest 763s.

So the question is, what will they order for 2025. I doubt it will be 339s.

I highly suspect it's LH (Group). If the pilot deal goes through (currently in ballot), they need to expand the KTV flying (overall), while it's partly shrinking, as the 4U part is moved to EW. So they need aircraft. Also the number kind of makes sense. It could be the 30 options and the one ntu by ...
