    This means that 80.7 million passengers chose to fly with Lufthansa, SWISS, Austrian Airlines, bmi or Germanwings. The Group increased its capacity by 10.6 per cent and its revenue seat kilometres by 7.9 per cent in the first three quarters of the year. The average passenger load factor per aircraft correspondingly fell by 1.9 percentage points to 77.7 per cent.

    How much of the capacity increase was due to NEK?

    Overall, in the first nine months of the year Lufthansa Passenger Airlines improved its traffic figures above all in the Europe traffic region. This can be attributed to the utilisation of larger aircraft and the launch of the new Europa cabin on short-haul routes. In all, 49.4 million passengers flew with Lufthansa Passenger Airlines, which equates to a year-on-year increase of 12.1 per cent. Lufthansa expanded its capacity by 13 per cent in the first nine months, while sales were up 10 per cent. The load factor was 2.1 percentage points down year on year, at 77.8 per cent.

    Thank You NewbieRunner!
    Sales may be up, however at least in some markets my suspicion is yields are down.
    I have booked 3 trips in business this week with LX and LH (2 EU>Asia, 1 EU>America) and each ticket was less than 2000 EUR per person round trip including taxes. Hardly a study in fare yields, however this is a lot lower than even 6 months ago. Given the very poor European business class product however with Lufthansa I am not surprised- 200 eur more and we would have flown QR to Asia and BA to America- which are both substansially better products.

    LH really needs to improve their hard product, their very poor (not in the air where it is good) customer service, and the less than competitive frequent flyer program if they want premium prices.
