Germany's largest airline Lufthansa welcomed investors for its annual stockholder's meeting today. And CEO Crasten Spohr had a pretty picture in tow: 2017 brought more passanger, more cargo and more profit.
Passengers affected won’t be surprised, but the announcement by Lufthansa that the airline group was forced to cancel 18,000 flights up to the end of August shows the headwinds the aviation industry has faced this year.
Three days before the start of the Munich Oktoberfest on Saturday (22.09. - 07.10.) Lufthansa is sending its crew on their journey in Bavarian costume. And there's draught beer on board!
Irish no-frills carrier Ryanair has reported a decline in profits for the first half of its fiscal year. Europe's largest budget airline said the slump was due to repeated strikes and higher fuel prices.
Singapore Airlines is the world's best airline. Qatar Airways slips to second place, according to Skytrax-Ranking. Around 20 million passengers take part in the survey every year.
