Lufthansa was of the opinion that the passenger had violated his general conditions of sale and claimed compensation of € 2,112, the difference between the price of his ticket (€ 657) and what would have been a direct flight (€ 2769). However, a judge in Berlin dismissed the company in mid-December. A motivated decision, according to BFMTV, due to the inability of the judges to obtain from Lufthansa the justification for the exact recalculation that resulted in the requested amount. However, a spokesman for the company confirmed to CNN that the company had already appealed against this decision.
