Leadership turnaround in Lufthansa airlines

Lufthansa, the biggest airline in Europe, has sorted out its leadership crisis. There was a dispute over its former CEO, Wolfgang Mayrhuber - should be elected its next chairman or not. One of the large German investor groups holding Lufthansa shares, Union Investment, announced earlier that it will vote against Mayrhuber. However, he has been elected as Chairman on May 7, 2013. Mayrhuber was Lufthansa’s CEO from 2003 to 2010, and has faced criticism from investors and senior management for the acquisition of Austrian Airlines and a large stake in Brussels Airlines, two troubled carriers still implementing restructuring plans. His critics also claim he did not do enough to counter competition from low-cost carriers.
