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.

    You don't know what you're missing out on man. I just had my 15th booster. Vaxx is the only way to fly.

    Alternatively, my bourgeois interests are advanced by waves of sweet Malthusian death, so I got vaccinated so that I could go maskless and spread it to more old, useless proles who just sit on social security leaching my tax dollars.
