[INGLÊS] Lufthansa operará vôos long-haul low cost em 2015


Recommended Posts

Lufthansa (LH, Frankfurt Int'l) will use nine A340-300s previously earmarked for retirement for use on select long-haul routes from summer 2015. Germany's Spiegel magazine says Lufthansa intends to offer low-cost long-haul flights using the quadjets, which will be reconfigured with fewer business class seats.


Flights will be offered to destinations such as the Caribbean, India, Thailand and Taiwan - markets where the airline has lost market share to the likes of Emirates (EK, Dubai Int'l), Qatar Airways (QR, Doha Int'l) among others.


In a bid to keep costs down, negotiations with airport operators and staff regarding concessions are set to begin in due course.

Usar aeronaves com um custo elevado para vôos "low-cost" me parece estranho mas, enfim.

Tambem achei. Não era a LH, uma das únicas cias a ter lucro com os 340? Achava que isso se dava devido ao elevado número de assentos premium...

Game on.

One day after officially taking over as Lufthansa Airlines’ new CEO, Carsten Spohr is putting his words into action. Spohr will retrofit nine Airbus 340-300s that were set to be retired and use them on select long-haul routes starting next summer, hoping to regain marketshare Lufthansa has lost to gulf airlines, according to the German magazine Spiegel.

While being introduced as the new CEO, Spohr said that while he believes Lufthansa can compete in Europe with low-cost airlines like Ryanair, “Those we can handle. They’re on a level playing ield. With the Gulf carriers, it’s different,” he said. The Germain carrier has had a feud with such airlines as Emirates, Etihad and Qatar, and believes – as do British Airways and Air France – that Gulf airlines use unfair subsidies to finance their aircraft deals, according to Bloomberg News.

Thus, the move to retrofit the A340s makes sense.

Lufthansa will offer low-cost long-haul flights on these aircraft, which will be reconfigured with less business class seats, on routes to the Caribbean and the Far East, among other long-haul spots.

Spiegel noted that Lufthansa will negotiate with airport operators and staff regarding concessions in order to keep costs down for the low-cost flights.

More immediately, Spohr will need to settle a labor dispute with his pilots’ union, which launched a three-day strike last month that cost the airline more than $70 million against what had been a 22 percent rise in stock price since September.

Custo elevado? Custo elevado é despesa de capital para adquirir aeronaves novas.

Ela ainda é sócia na Condor/Thomas Cook? vai competir com ela mesma....deve ser um modelo como a Air France tem para Caribe/Índico. Antigamente chamavam de Alizé, agora virou LC International

Muito estranho,mas parece que vão usar as aeronaves que de qualquer forma já estariam em processo de devolução,ou seja,a Airbus deve ter dado um ótimo valor de leasing,apenas para não deixar em desuso,paradas...quiçá a Lh viu uma oportunidade nova de explorar um oportunidade de criar um forma de competir neste mercado concorrido

Fora que as aeronaves estão pagas, ou seja leasing zero.

 

Ela ainda é sócia na Condor/Thomas Cook? vai competir com ela mesma....deve ser um modelo como a Air France tem para Caribe/Índico. Antigamente chamavam de Alizé, agora virou LC International

 

Ela não é mais sócia da Condor.

Para o mercado Leisure, de vôos pouco frequentes, mas oferecendo um vôo direto, ao contrário das Gulf Carriers, numa aeronave que ia ficar parada, acho que vai dar certo.

 

Lembrando que a LH "tem experiência" LCLF com a Germanwings

Aeronaves pagas ? Então vai ser mais fácil trabalhar com um preço competitivo,alguém sabe se usarão a marca Germanwings ou vão ser Lh?

A LH pode fazer como a Air China que já teve A343 com 370 assentos (12F358Y) e fazendo voos com 1h30 de turnaround, ela conseguirá algum $$$.

New Lufthansa CEO Un-Retires A340s For Long-Haul Flights
