    Emirates Airline says no drop in demand yet:)

    (Reuters) - State-owned carrier Emirates Airline EMIRA.UL is not yet seeing a downturn in business and bookings for the next few months are at high levels, even as other airlines warn stuttering economies are affecting sales.

    "As yet, fingers crossed, we have not seen any diminution of demand," President Tim Clark told Reuters in an interview at Hamburg airport.

    Lufthansa (LHAG.DE) last week warned on profits and said it would offer fewer seats on its planes this winter than previously expected.

    In contrast, low-cost rival easyjet (EZJ.L) lifted its guidance for the year, boosted by business passengers.
