Adjusted cash flow was reported at approximately €2 billion, boosted by strong demand for bookings and operating profit, it said, adding that net debt is expected to have fallen by a similar amount in the second quarter.
Adjusted earnings (EBIT) were between €350 million and €400 million, compared with a loss of €827 million a year earlier, Lufthansa said.
