Report: Lufthansa Group Confirmed That 18,000 Flights Had Been Flown Empty To Keep Airport Slots - Airlive:

[...] Under these "use it or lose it" regulations, prior to the pandemic carriers had to utilise at least 80pc of their scheduled take-off and landing slots.

This was revised to 50pc as coronavirus saw travel become increasingly difficult – but airlines are still struggling to hit this target.

As a result of Lufthansa Group's latest figures, the Belgian federal government has written to the European Commission, calling for a change to the rules on maintaining slots.

    There I go again. mt = empty, I was a welder in my teen years and it's a habit I can't seem to break in my retirement years.

    for those of you who don't follow me (and really, why would you?) welders mark empty tanks mt. I can't seem to break the habit. My bad, so sorry.

    No worries, I just assumed it was some texting slang that slipped in.

    No worries, I just assumed it was another boring asshole thinking everyone's interested in their shitty personal story they tack onto every interaction. My bad.
