yes, it is absolutely true that LH seems to strive for a monopoly every move it takes.
although their were major concessions to make regarding the Eurowings deal, LH got through with it.
when Go first entered the MUC-STN market, LH offered fares which were far too low to make a profit, just to kick Go out of the market and then raise fares again.
and just today Jürgen Weber told the Wall Street Journal that he filed a complaint that US carriers are using their current financial aid to reduce fares on north-atlantic routes, leaving the european carriers in a situation in which they cannot compete, which is actually the very same thing LH did with Go.
so if it suits LH´s interests, LH´s turns the truth as much as it needs it.
additionally, i totally agree that it would be a shame if OS´s and NG´s hospitality and service would suffer or be lost if taken over by LH some time.
i´ve never flown OS, but i experienced NG´s service which is absolutely superb. compared to LH´s economy class (especially on longhauls) it´s ages better.
the only economy class i dislike more than LH´s is AA´s economy.
however, i´m pretty fond of LH´s business class (best chocolates worldwide!!!!!!
If only pure sweetness was offered, why's this bitter taste left in my mouth.
