  2. 2. Advertising, PR and online chat The actual journey; service, information communication, check-in process, in flight experience What it is? Using ENGAGEMENTS to Stand Out from rest of the Consideration Set  The Active Evaluation could be the point where if a brand fails to make a connection with the consumer at a touch point, they will turn to a competitor instead.  We can take into account the important post-purchase experience and identify the role of touch points at each stage  Each touch points has a potential and hence serves as a point of engagement for us. Adapted from McKinsey Traditionally, the consumer journey was mapped as a linear series of stages. With the new loop model, we can take into account the important post-purchase experience and identify the role of touch-points at each stage modified as Brand engagements for Lufthansa. Create magic moments from touch points/ Engagements at every stage in the loop journey in order to earn customer’s loyalty and advocacy, building a successful brand. Earn customer loyalty by providing a reliable and valued service, something different to competitors based on proper communication and proper loyalty incentives THE CONSUMER JOURNEY LOOP

Move towards Mobile Advance Offering smart, mobility-enabled, personalized services and products can generate new revenues Our suggested “Mobility Advance” promises to transform how Lufthansa interact with passengers using a range of services and smart solutions at various touch points along their journey, delivering real-time, relevant, and value-added information. Airline Mobility Evolution New Process Innovations are possible from Mobility Advance Using Mobility advance, Lufthansa can benefit in the following ways Shared ramp management—Real-time information such as gate changes, leading to a reduction in aircraft turnaround times.

  8. 8. It is clear that the majority of the premium customers of Lufthansa Airlines are from North America, Asia/Pacific and Europe. The routes highlighted in Table 1 should be targeted for increasing the number of flights because of 2 reasons: 1) The premium traffic growth rate is the highest on those routes as compared to the other routes. 2) The price elasticity of demand is also less than or equal to 0.6 as shown in Table 2. So, they are less sensitive to ticket prices Phase 1 : In phase 1 of roll-out of the introduction of more number of flights, the targeted routes should be the routes (obtained from Table 1) and the corresponding levels (obtained from Table 2) where the price elasticity is low (less than 0.6). Phase 2 : In phase 2, the targeted routes with price elasticity levels between 0.6 and 0.9 should be considered for roll-out. Routes like intra-Asia, intra-Europe and intra-Africa should not be considered for the first 2 phases of roll out because they form only a small chunk of the premium customers (although in Africa, the price sensitivity is quite low).

  10. 10. • The three most important routes for Lufthansa are Europe, North America and Asia/Pacific, which together constitute 86.4% of the total revenue. • Here we have taken a conservative estimate of growth in revenues (includes growth of volume, price mix currency effects) of 10%. • Then we have analysed the impact of increasing the number of flights plying on these routes by 10%. • Again taking a further conservative estimate of 75% availability/suitability of these routes for our implementation, we get total estimated revenues of 12.122 EUR billions, considering the premium share of 50.4% of the total intercontinental traffic. In these financial analysis, we are trying to analyse the relative importance of different routes in terms of revenues earned and also tried to map it with the price elasticity of the premium customers in different parts of the world, so as to give an idea of the most profitable target routes for Lufthansa for introduction of more number of flights.
