WASHINGTON, 12 March 2012. Officials at Air France-KLM and Lufthansa, considered to be Europe's largest airlines, warn that high fuel prices will continue to negatively impact profits. Managers at both carriers express concern that profits will continue to deteriorate in the first half of 2012 due to high oil prices.
