German national airline Lufthansa has revealed a huge increase in profits over 2007, reaping the benefits of a successful takeover and increasing popularity of its flight routes.Net profit for 2007 was claimed to have doubled on the previous year, making last year a record one for Europe’s second-largest airline and confirming the benefits of its takeover of fellow national carrier Swiss.The unusual move was greeted with some scepticism, but now looks to have paid off: combined group traffic surged 30 per cent in January from a year previously, with collective passenger demand for European, American, Middle Eastern and African destinations growing fast.A group total of 62.9 million passengers were handled over the year, but the popularity of long-haul flight routes with premium passengers was also seen to have contributed greatly to Lufthansa’s growth.Another factor contributing to the firm’s record year was the sale of its stake in tourism group Thomas Cook for a gain of €503 million (£379 million), with full financial figures set for release on March 12th.ReturnOne wayMulti-cityFromAdd nearby airports ToAdd nearby airportsDepart14/08/2019Return21/08/2019Cabin Class & Travellers1 adult, EconomyDirect flights onlySearch flights Map
Day 1 of Project PhoenixParticipants came with high hopes that it would be a transformative weekend, but with little understanding of the project and its vision, relying heavily on faith in the organizers. At the end of the weekend, it was clear their faith was in good hands.The idea of Project Phoenix was conceived by a small group of younger and older Unificationists who had a profound experience around healing and reconciliation between young and older generations. Built on the foundation of four years of prayers for the concern of the growth of the Unification movement in North America, its premise holds that by creating intergenerational unity focused on authentic relationships as a family, we can create communities across the states filled with joy and loving families centered on God.The purpose of the conference was as follows:To experience God, be lit up about our lives and unique contribution, to leave connected to a dynamic community, and to be empowered in moving forward as a family and movement.To set a space where everyone could grow as family, 14 family groups were created at the gathering, each consisting of about six to eight participants. Each family group consisted of a mix of senior and junior Unificationists. Lucia Anderson and Tasnah Moyer facilitated a session, guiding participants to commit to creating a space of discovery, listening, sharing and being present.David Young led a guided session from his Divine Principle application seminar, Take Your Life On, on taking ownership of life as God’s child. This assisted in opening hearts and minds to receive not just the person sitting in the chair across the table, but to receive ourselves as people fully capable of anything.“I really enjoyed David Young’s talk,” said participant Laura Boitano. “It was about empowering yourself to change your attitude to change your circumstances, and I thought that was really relevant to my life and a really useful tool to not victimize yourself but to empower yourself to get the results that you want in your life.”With this in place, Justin Okamoto facilitated the process of setting intentions for the weekend. Afterwards, Sam Orman led the group family-time fun that had everyone playing games, singing, and dancing. The night closed powerfully with group song and prayer in trinities.
