    Ryanair, EasyJet Scale Back in Germany Over Airport Fees

    Lufthansa has tightened its grip in Berlin, Frankfurt and Munich, squeezing out discounters.

    Lufthansa has held its ground via control of more than two-thirds of slots in Frankfurt and Munich—far more than what British Airways and Air France have at their London and Paris bases. On domestic routes, Lufthansa and its low-cost subsidiary, Eurowings, have a near-total monopoly, so there’s scant incentive to lower fares.

    Could that be deemed as anti-competitive and breaks EU law?

    It sounds like it, so it must be very carefully done, but it is definitely bad for customers
