Events like the shootings in Munich have a direct effect on demands, with Lufthansa reporting advanced booking significantly reduced. EasyJet has also been affected by a mixture of Brexit, terror attacks and a weak pound. Despite passenger numbers increasing in the third quarter, total revenue per seat has been down.
