The Skytrax Award is evidence that Lufthansa passengers appreciate our quality.
“The combination of premium service and excellent facilities has impressed passengers worldwide and made us Europe’s number one. Our offer has never been better.”
On receipt of the award, Spohr thanked the employees of Lufthansa in particular, who made this success possible with their excellent work.
