@CandiceOnTech .@finnair wants to make 20 euro per passengers with #ancillary sales #CAPASummit.
@PEdmondAero Doganis: e.g. @easyJet has 220 aircraft but outsources all its #MRO/engineering, with fresh competitive bids every 3-5 years #CAPASummit.
@PEdmondAero Roeska of @lufthansa: we can operate small aircraft profitably – some thin routes/regional aircraft among our most profitable #CAPASummit.
@PEdmondAero Roeska of @Lufthansa: in future, airline profits will mostly come from ancillary revenues rather than selling tickets. #CAPASummit.
