@crankyflier Fascinating stat: Lufthansa Group says premium econ is the most “productive” class. In terms of revenue per sq meter, prem econ is 6% higher than biz and 33% higher than coach.
@crankyflier I hadn’t looked at Q1 DOT data yet, so I almost spit out my drink when I read in @Airline_Weekly that @SunCountryAir posted a 24% margin in the first quarter.  It’s amazing what a change in model can do…
