News from Lufthansa Jan 2018:
The German company said that while a different brand look will be maintained, the Airbus A320s of Austrian Airlines, Brussels Airlines, Eurowings, Lufthansa and SWISS due to be delivered from 2019 will all have a standard spec.
Large, cost-intensive components such as cabin design and the galley, will be standardised across the fleet, Lufthansa said, but smaller components such as emergency equipment should also comply with a group-wide standard.
A common freight loading specification is also being developed in cooperation with Airbus.
The fleet commonality will give Lufthansa flexibility between its airline units “to move aircraft and capacities more easily and efficiently between the airlines and the Group’s hubs,” the airline said in a statement.
Lufthansa Group airlines are scheduled to take delivery of around 100 new A320neo-family aircraft by 2025.
They also fly from Dublin to Bratislava, Venice and : Salzburg

It is nice to have the independance of a car when on holiday, but many Rental firms often try to persuade you when you pick up the car to upgrade to more comprehensive insurance that reduces the ‘excess’ (the amount you have to pay if there’s damage to the vehicle) to zero.
But you can pay as much as £10 a day for the additional cover!
WHAT TO DO: Buy in advance a much better-value stand-alone excess waiver policy.
