LX cancels codesharing with EW on ZRH-Hamburg

According to this article (in German only - sorry) which is usually a reliable source.
The reason beeing that they increase their own frequencies and thus do not need EW any more for connecting traffic.

What are your thougths of this? Does EW not meet LX standards? It is quite strange that they would no co-operate given they are fully owned by Lufthansa...

it kind of makes no sense to me especially as EW is increasingly rolling out their BIZclass.

The standards of LX have gone way down the plughole anyway, so I very much doubt that is a reason.

Especially for mileage earning those are great news.
Also, I'd prefer LX over EW any day.

there are 8-9 flights a day on LH/LX/EW from ZRH-HAM which is a lot to start with...
