Aviado Partners is interviewed by Bloomberg TV's the Pulse discussing Lufthansa

9 July 2014, Eschborn, Germany


Aviado Partners Consulting GmbH Managing Director Shakeel Adam discusses his outlook for Lufthansa and the European airline industry on “The Pulse.” (Source: Bloomberg)


Shakeel highlights Lufthansa's strengths as a dependable, reliable and consistent provider of air transport services, but also identifies the challenges related to overcapacity in the market, in Lufthansa's own fleet and from internal structural challenges from high labour costs - issues which commonly plague the industry. Lufthansa is not alone in facing these challenges. However, it is difficult to compare airlines since Lufthansa's strengths come at a cost which other airlines which are not as reliable or consistent will not carry.


Shakeel points out the need to not be too distracted by external pressures, reinforcing the need to focus on the airline's strengths as the core for the future. Understanding competition is important, but businesses should take care to not get too distracted by the real and perceived threats from competitors.
