Re: Watchdog group accuses Lufthansa of Price Hikes in wake of Air Berlin Bankruptcy

Allow me to put some structure to this discussion. I agree with all of you that what happened is simple economics: Capacity was removed from the market, demand stayed the same, price went up (potentially significantly on some routes). I also agree that current price increases are a (hopefully short...

Sure, you could fly an A380 LHR-SYD, but with what passenger count? And even if they could charge premiums to fly an all business/premium A380, on what other routes could they use it? IMO you'd be flying a configuration that would be unique to a single route, which is probably not profitable.
