Lufthansa cuts 1Q2016 operating loss, but mainly thanks to one-offs and fuel. Cost focus still key

5-May-2016 8:00 AM

The Lufthansa Group narrowed its operating loss in the seasonally weak 1Q2016, in spite of a fall in revenue. A weak pricing environment was more than offset by a reduction in unit costs. This was principally thanks to lower fuel costs, but there was also a welcome fall in underlying ex fuel CASK at constant currency.

However, although Lufthansa Passenger reported higher profits than in 1Q2015, there was a decline for SWISS, Eurowings, Cargo, MRO and Catering. For LCC Eurowings, this was partly due to start-up costs in long haul and at Vienna, but it also reflected strong LCC competition in Germany. Lufthansa is still considering whether to add Brussels Airlines to its Eurowings operation. Austrian only improved its result because of a one-off gain and, moreover, it seems that the improvement in operating profit at the Group level compared with 1Q2015 was due to one-off items.

Lufthansa still expects to post a slightly higher adjusted EBIT result in 2016 than in 2015. Nevertheless, its 1Q2016 report demonstrates that, for all its restructuring progress, it is not achieving results that are consistent with the broader cyclically high margins of the global airline industry. Further CASK reduction remains the focus.

Lufthansa: 2013 underlying profits back on a rising trend ahead of CEO change

18-Mar-2014 6:46 PM

In 2013, Lufthansa showed the first signs that its SCORE restructuring programme may be having an impact on its results. While its operating result fell from its 2012 level, this was affected by restructuring costs and project implementation costs, which should produce benefits in future years. Adjusting for these one-off costs, underlying profitability improved for the first time since 2010, mainly due to lower unit costs.

Ahead of an imminent change of leadership at the top of the group, Lufthansa has also announced a couple of small, but fairly radical, changes. First, it will separately incorporate its FFP and, second, it will bring its aircraft depreciation policy more in line with market practice.

Lufthansa is now somewhere close to half way through SCORE. Outgoing CEO Christoph Franz, who will leave on 30-Apr-2014, can be credited with instigating the programme and delivering a fairly solid start. As with all restructuring programmes, their success or failure can only really be judged when they are complete and it will be the responsibility of new CEO Carsten Spohr to steer the group to the right result at the programme’s end in 2015.

European airlines ramp-up capacity to China

10-Aug-2011 5:33 PM

Asia Pacific, particularly China, is one of the current destination hotspots for European carriers, with connections between Europe and China improving in recent months and over the past couple of years. The initial focus was obviously on providing connectivity between key European hubs and the capital city of Beijing, with services to Shanghai also quite extensive, although a number of carriers are adding service to secondary, albeit still large destinations in China, such as Chengdu, Guangzhou, Hangzhou, Nanjing, Chongqin, Urumqi, Sancha, Dalian and Harbin.

Chinese airline consolidation: Second tier airlines in the sights of the 'Big Four'

29-Oct-2010 4:57 PM

China’s fragmented airline industry is undergoing a shakeup. Merger and acquisition activity is intense – probably more so than any other aviation market in the world. In the space of a few short years, the majority of China’s second tier airlines have, at least partially, become owned or controlled by one of the "Big Three" carriers and/or HNA Group, as consolidation accelerates in China. In this report, CAPA reviews what’s fuelling the feeding frenzy and who the targets are.

British Airways CEO, Willie Walsh British Airways completes woeful year for Europe’s Big Three. Outlook brighter

24-May-2010 5:05 PM

British Airways reported an operating loss of GBP231 million for the 12 months ended 31-Mar-2010, completing a dismal year for Europe’s big three airlines. Between them, BA, Air France-KLM and Lufthansa generated net losses of EUR2.16 billion*, as revenues crumbled in the face of the deepest post-war global economic recession. GBP1 billion (EUR1,155 million) was carved off BA’s annual revenue (-11.1% to GBP7,994 million, EUR9,252 million), while Air France-KLM suffered a 15% fall in revenue to EUR20,995 million. The Lufthansa Group generated revenues totaling EUR22.3 billion in 2009, down 10.3% year-on-year.
