Denver International Airport plays hosts to dozens of airlines. None occupies nearly so many gates as United Continental (NASDAQ:UAL), but among investors, it's United's Star Alliance partner, Deutsche Lufthansa (NASDAQOTH:DLAKY), they love best.

Debt, which accounts for 45% of total capital, isn't the same concern for Lufthansa as it is for United Continental (87% of total capital) or most other U.S. carriers. What's more, the airline has recently made smart labor-relations moves and is finding ways to expand while cutting costs. Find out more in the following video.
