BERLIN, July 31 (Reuters) - Lufthansa said it was more positive on ticket prices for the rest of the year after it reported slightly better than expected profit for the second quarter of the year.
The carrier said on Tuesday it now expected a slight increase in unit revenues, against a previous forecast for the measure of pricing to be stable.
However, it maintained its guidance for adjusted earnings before interest and tax to fall slightly from 2017’s record level of 2.97 billion euros ($3.48 billion).
