Squaring up

The article presents a comparison on the services offered by different airlines. In terms of price, Ryanair would appear to be the cheapest option, but there is no in-flight service and Frankfurt-Hahn is quite far from the city. Lufthansa's business class is comparable to British Airways (BA) Club Europe, but the two-abreast seating gives those travelling on the German carrier more elbow room. Only Lufthansa and BA include a full meal service, but Air Berlin offers snacks and drinks even for those paying its lowest fare.
