TRANS-ATLANTIC TRAFFIC:  IT’S NOT UP

  • Overall trans-Atlantic traffic is not growing this year and load factors are down, particularly among the U.S. carriers.  Details for May are in the current Trans-Atlantic report.
  • United to quit JFK. The nation’s second-largest carrier will move the last of its JFK flights—transcontinentals to California—to Newark in October.  That ends an era, according to the latest Trans-Atlantic report.

LUFTHANSA GETS TOUGH

  • Lufthansa will charge more if you book through a GDS… Greece can’t win, but the eurozone could still lose… U.S. jobs and consumer confidence are on the rise again… and more in the new Trans-Atlantic report.

AND COMING IN THE END-JUNE ISSUE…

  • The peak season is underway for U.S. travel to Europe and the dollar is still strong… is a record year in the making?
