@JohnLStrickland .@lufthansa Q3 results softer. Yields under pressure. Union challenges remain & then @Ryanair announces a new base @Airport_FRA !!!.
@lufthansaNews Welcome to the real @Airport_FRA, dear @Ryanair. In case you get lost on such a big airport, just give us a call! #NonstopYou.
@lufthansaNews @Airport_FRA Thanks. Looks like you need a holiday. You can fly #Ryanair for €9.99. Low fares have finally come to Frankfurt.
