I'm almost embarrassed to post this, but it does sound sensible to me and it came from someone who knew what he was talking about:
Even as a business-centric airline like LH
, you have to have some attractive leisure destinations in your route network - and with decent frequency and capacity, too. The reason is that you have to keep your frequent fliers happy; be it through high availability of award fares or by offering them a holiday flight with the standard they know from their business trips.
So even if they don't make a lot of money directly
, flights to MCO
or e.g. CPT
(seasonal) do keep money in the company.
Don't cry because it's over, smile because it happened.
