maybe that will be the case, or maybe not...currently it works quite well and changes ARE coming up.
as for the upgrades...free lunch was and is never the solution, free giveaways will get you no money and even if German business travellers are tempted, it won't work most of the time anyway out of schedule reasons.
event flyers: please read carefully: I didn't strereotype all economy flyers, certainly not, just those few, who fit in that stereotype and are obviously all members of this forum.
Most of the economy flyers are business travellers, too, I know that quite well and therefore have other preferences, like i.e. schedule, flexibility in connections etc.
As for legroom: LH is average in that aspect, not more, not less, and all Mr. Mayrhuber said was, that they CURRENTLY see no preference in the market for that product (economy plus), that might change or it might not. Especially in aviation it rarely pays to pioneer in terms of earnings, so LH is currently not under pressure to accelerate their interior design program.
I know it's only VfB but I like it!
