Lufthansa Group: “As expected, the month of June was dominated by business traffic and was not affected by public holidays in Germany. The number of flights declined again, as in the previous month, whereas passenger numbers, capacity, sales and load factor for the Passenger Airline Group all rose year on year. Despite the deliberately greater proportion of Economy Class passengers and persistently weak revenue in Asia, the overall pricing environment was positive.” Source: Company statement, 09-Jul-2013.
