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.
