Anticipating a significant decline in demand for travel in a post-corona world, German major Lufthansa has gone in for its first permanent capacity reduction. On Tuesday, the airline’s board decided to permanently decommission six Airbus A380s, seven A340-600s and five Boeing 747-400s, apart from withdrawing 11 A320s from short-haul operations.
