But we need more government bail-outs: Well, the Germans have done it again. Invade France? No, it's too hot over there. Instead, they managed to run an airline, at profit, in 2Q 2003, beating all so-called "experts" and their predictions. Now, I've linked to Lufthansa's web-site directly, as most news sources only mention it as a squib. I don't know what percentage of its money comes from the German government, but even if it is subsidized, and even though it had to do some decent-sized cut-backs, it shows it can be done. I've always thought Lufthansa gave you the best flight for the buck, maybe more people are realizing this. Plus, that good old German security can't hurt.
