Lufthansa to fly less and with smaller planes22 September 2011
Fearing an economic downturn, Germanyâ€™s flagship airline Lufthansa is cutting flights and capacity, the company announced on Thursday.
â€œWe are removing part of the anticipated additional capacity out of planning, in that we are reducing frequency, cutting some connections, and using smaller airplanes,â€ Chairman Carsten Spohr told the SÃ¼ddeutsche Zeitung newspaper.
It was crucial in these times to take make such decisions early rather than flying through the crisis with empty planes, he added.
