  2. If last year they'd have a normal steady growth, then this year we probably wouldn't see double digit growth here. This high numbers are the cause of last years poor performance. They just seem to be doing 2 years of work in 1 year now. But it's month 5 anyway. Lots of things can happen in the remaining 7. I wish them the best tho, I really do

    2. last year it was -10.5% in April. They're just picking up last years slack. it wouldn't be 31.5% growth if last years april wasn't so ridiculously bad.

    1. Easyjet and transavia plus better LH overall.
      Good job to LJU, but this is nothing to get overexcited about...If LJU manages to grow at a 20% throughout the rest of the year, it will only then reach its precrisis record from 2008.when it handled 1.68 mil pax...so really LJU needs several outstanding years to overcome disaster that has been happening for 8 years now...
