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.
A week-long IT glitch at Frankfurt, Germany's busiest airport, caused about 68 flights a day to be cancelled. The answer lay in returning to a previous version of its air traffic control software.
A software glitch at a German air traffic control center has caused flight cancellations for the best part of a week. Yet it's just one of several problems afflicting this most critical cog in the global transport wheel.
Almost 70 flights into and out of Germany's busiest airport were canceled as faults with traffic control software continue. Airspace in the region will run at 75 percent capacity until safe conditions are restored.
The Lufthansa subsidiary has cancelled 222 flights ahead of a nationwide strike called for Wednesday. All air traffic in Belgium may be affected.
