Lufthansa Group: “The Passenger Airline Group reduced its capacities in March by 0.6% compared with last year. At the same time, sales increased by 3.0%, so the passenger load factor again improved sharply by 2.8 ppts to 79.5%. The yield in March was down on last year due to the structural shift towards more economy class capacities on long-haul routes and weaker performance in Asia/Pacific.” Source: Company statement, 10-Apr-2013.
