Comment received from passenger's lawyer, Dr. Mattias Bose:
I was made aware of your article on the Lufthansa-Case.
I am the passenger's lawyer in this case.
To make one point very clear as some media got it wrong: There is already a first instance ruling in which Lufthansas action was already dismissed. We are currently in the level of appeal.
If I should be able to help you out with any more information or a legal opinion: Just shout out to me. We are quite optimistic to prevail in this stage of appeal as well. We have an array of arguments towards the clause in Lufthansas T&Cs of which every single argument would make their lawsuit unsuccesful. Being intransparent for the passenger, as the court stated in the first stage, is just one of the arguments.
You can find our information website with some more background information, that might also be handy for your users, on https://www.franz.de/en/law-firm/news/soft-landing-local-court-of-berlin-mitte-strengthens-consumer-rights-in-a-lufthansa-case/
If this should be of interest, we are also available for interview request, we can provide photos, videos and audio material.
