Lufthansa announced that it has realized it best year ever as far as on-time departure performance is concerned.

For 2013, 85% of all Lufthansa operated flights departing Frankfurt and Munich departed on time. This inspite of many challenged faced by LH throughout the year including strike tactics, severe winter weather, night-flight departure bans in Frankfurt and construction in Munich.

In addition, LH also reported that approximately only 1% of passengers had their luggage delayed to their final destination during 2013.

News like this is great to see because so many times we get caught up in the various forums and threads that criticize an airlines performance. Usually it’s only those having issues who will complain and those who have no problems seldom will pay a compliment to an airline.

Nice to see a bit of good news when it comes to baggage handling and on-time performance!
