You could argue that Lufthansa deserves more recognition than some of the others on the list. It is the largest airline in Europe when you consider the number of passengers carried, and is also the largest German carrier.

Unlike some of the other European airlines, Lufthansa doesn’t do super long-haul flights, and their top flight time is around 13 hours. This allows the airline to specialize in shorter flights and offer an amazing business and first class service that has won many awards in recent years.
