Air in the brake lines

Hi, my Honda Civic 1.8 suffer from air in the brake lines. Last year I've changed the braks oil, so it's quite new.
At the end of July my dealer bleed the brake lines, but after a month and about 2.000 km the pedal is spongy and it takes half way the first time.
Did someone has the same problem?

My previous car was an Accord (8th Gen) and the previous owner had the brake fluid changed by a dealer and I always felt that the brakes were spongy and had too much travel.
After about 2 years I replaced all the pads and bled the system myself using a vacuum tool and the brakes were fine.
DIY and be sure that the job is done properly!

The problem is that after the bleeding the brakes were fine. But after 2000 km they returned spongy and sometimes I need to press twice the pedal.
