Deutsche Lufthansa, commonly known as Lufthansa, is the largest German] airline which, when combined with its subsidiaries, is the second-largest airline in Europe in terms of passengers carried. The name of the former is derived from the German word Luft meaning “air” and Hansa for the Hanseatic League. Lufthansa is one of the five founding members of Star Alliance, the world’s largest airline alliance, formed in 1997.
Besides its own services, and owning subsidiary passenger airlines Austrian Airlines, Swiss International Air Lines, Brussels Airlines, and Eurowings, Deutsche Lufthansa owns several aviation-related companies, such as Lufthansa Technik and LSG Sky Chefs, as part of the Lufthansa Group In total, the group has over 700 aircraft, making it one of the largest airline fleets in the world.

The design similarities cut maintenance costs too. And passengers appreciate the feeling of spaciousness when they enter the cabin after boarding any member of the A320 family.
