Lufthansa Group: “Compared with the same month in the previous year, which was adversely affected by two days of strikes at Lufthansa Passenger Airlines, the Group was able to increase traffic, as was expected. The pricing environment, however, was weaker than in the previous year due to increasingly negative exchange rate effects and the persistent weakness in Asia,” Source: Company statement, 10-Oct-2013.
