After the Corona crisis, air traffic is slowly but surely picking up again. And how! Even the most exclusive and therefore most expensive flights are in great demand again. For example, the flight with Lufthansa in first class from Frankfurt (D) to San Francisco (USA) with Lufthansa. This is reported by the “Spiegel”.
The exclusive flight costs a whopping 24,000 dollars – and is currently sold out. Even CEO Carsten Spohr (55) seems surprised and asks his wealthy clientele for patience. “We’re seeing very strong numbers on the North America route,” says Spohr. “And to be honest: In the summer season we are already sold out anyway.”
Punctuality in the center
With its offer, the crane airline even exceeds the number of flights to the USA before the Corona crisis. 25 destinations are flown to, but even their capacities are not sufficient for the expected rush. That’s how great the travel fever is after the Corona crisis that was thought to be over.
“For me, it was the Easter holidays that brought about the change – from too many resources for too few passengers to suddenly too many passengers for too few resources,” Spohr continues.

After years of the pandemic, travelers would no longer perceive aviation as a “bankrupt industry”. Finally, topics such as punctuality and reliability would be the focus again – and not the Corona crisis or the Ukraine war.
Now it is urgently a matter of increasing the workforce in the aviation industry again. The goals in terms of reliability and punctuality, as well as customer satisfaction, can only be achieved if there are enough staff on the flights again. Lufthansa’s Spohr says: “Let’s make sure that word gets out about how exciting it is to work in this industry.” (pbe)
