despite several days of strike at the airports in Düsseldorf, Hamburg and
Cologne-Bonn. In February, Germany's second-largest airline company, welcomed
1,801,396 passengers on board, further optimized its flight schedule, and
reduced capacity in a targeted manner to 3,412.8 million available seat

utilization. The capacity utilization calculation is now determined according to
the sector standard, and the revenue passenger kilometers (RPK) are compared to
the available seat kilometers (ASK). For the purpose of a yearly comparison, the
seat capacity utilization for 2012 was likewise calculated anew.
