Lufthansa has played a canny waiting game over a number of years. [It] is now well-placed to cherry pick those parts of Air Berlin's operations that suit it best without buying the whole loss-making

Brigitte Zypries

We assume that Air Berlin's airport slots... can be marketed and sold and we assume that the loan can be paid

Alexander Dobrindt

There is no transfer of Air Berlin as a whole to Lufthansa, there are parts of the business that will go to Lufthansa and there are interested parties for other bits of the business so we do not expect cartel

Carsten Spohr - Deutsche Lufthansa

We already support Air Berlin, in that we have leased 38 planes and set them on our routes. I can imagine, however, that we would expand this cooperation and lease further Air Berlin planes and crew. For me, there is no upper limit to this. On the other hand, I do not currently envisage a takeover of the

Carsten Spohr - Deutsche Lufthansa

From an outlook perspective we are getting more optimistic every week regarding our demand situation, especially from the U.S. and from

Willie Walsh - International Airlines Group

We're prepared to take some short-term pain to get some long-term structural change in that

Carsten Spohr - Deutsche Lufthansa

From what we hear in the industry, and with the visible success of Lufthansa, I'd be very surprised if others would not

Alexandre de Juniac - Air France-KLM

Optimism is returning to the industry as the business stabilizes after many years in the doldrums. There is, however, still much lost ground to recover while facing the dual headwinds of rising fuel and labor

Carsten Spohr - Deutsche Lufthansa

So much is happening in our industry right now. That's why we need

Elizabeth E. Macedonio

He's faced a series of unfounded charges before and was vindicated, and he will do the same this

Bettina Volkens - Deutsche Lufthansa

We really struggled hard to find a solution and I am convinced that we have found a solution that takes everyone into account. The needs of the customers, security for people to be able to plan, for our pilots, who now really do have future and career possibilities, which was particularly important. But also for us because we can now firm up our competitive

Carsten Spohr - Deutsche Lufthansa

We feel well equipped to be successful in 2017 in a continuing challenging

Michael Gierse

It's a real success. The pilots made major concessions, which I did not think would

Enrico Ruemker

The volume is too small and the duration far too long to find a compromise on this

Karl Ulrich Garnadt

The market reaction in Munich gives us confidence to look at doing similar in Frankfurt. Eurowings is the platform of choice for that and we are working on a solution for summer

József Váradi - Wizz Air

We are taking advantage of the low-fare environment, and we are growing more aggressively than planned before. I think our competitors are affected in a much bigger way, and I think this is why this is right for us to take

James Hogan - Etihad Airways

We met this morning to discuss further ways in which we can develop and strengthen partnership over

Andreas Mundt

Lufthansa has the chance to expand with these planes but that growth is not enough to block the

Michael O'Leary - Ryanair

We can help them by offering them cheap feed, low-cost feed into their hubs ... but that means taking out aircraft, people, and that's very difficult politically in Italy. We are still talking to them. It is nothing other than a takeover. They have been very receptive. The outcome for fares depends on what happens on Brexit and economic confidence in UK and Europe, what happens to oil, and unforeseen security

Michael O'Leary - Ryanair

As long as profitability continues to rise from 1.25 billion (euros) last year, in line with traffic, ... I see no reason why share buy backs shouldn't continue, absent unforeseen

Will Horton - CAPA Centre for Aviation

The rapid growth of Qatar Airways and its future expansion will make it harder and costlier for Etihad to stay relevant on its own - everything else

Christof Wellens

Some relatives view the closure of the case in Germany with horror because there are a lot of emotions, even two years after their family members were murdered. They don't understand why only Germanwings and Lufthansa should be responsible. I think there are actual people who could be held responsible

Christoph Kumpa

We have closed the case, there will be no further

Karl Ulrich Garnadt

Our hands are full. We don't have much capacity to handle anything else in

Michael Gierse

They want to reach the level of easyJet, but it's a tricky path. There's airports in Europe, such as Brussels, where Ryanair has even ousted

John Strickland

They've made a big commitment to the Air Berlin wet lease and the question is whether gaining that market share will be of tangible

Hans-Joachim Koerber

I thank Pichler for his unwavering efforts to achieve a

John Strickland

Other major airline groups like IAG and Qantas have long seen the value of

Ruxandra Haradau-Doeser

The limited code share agreement announced today is in our view a marginal price component for the Air Berlin

Bettina Volkens - Deutsche Lufthansa

The negotiating table is the only place where we can find solutions that offer prospects for employees and for the

Carsten Spohr - Deutsche Lufthansa

We of course will continue to harmonise the fleet, using the A320 for short-range. And a decision needs to be taken on future of long-range fleet next

Carsten Spohr - Deutsche Lufthansa

It's 100 million that we have to deduct due to what's happened in the last few

Carsten Spohr - Deutsche Lufthansa

Dirks has shown that he achieves economic success with firm cost

Paul Dobson

I think airline strikes have a short-term effect on people, so it only influences their booking decision if they are travelling again

Alexander Gerhard-Madjidi

For mediation you need an offer that can be the basis of negotiations. Lufthansa has not made such an

Martin Leutke

This could not go on and two more days of punishment are coming which is very disappointing for

Joerg Handwerg

We reject the accusation that we are not willing to compromise. We have already gone many, many rounds with Lufthansa. We have always tried new beginnings. Nevertheless there is still no negotiable offer on the

Bettina Volkens - Deutsche Lufthansa

We have to talk. I hope very much that Cockpit finally changes their uncompromising

Bettina Volkens - Deutsche Lufthansa

The wave of strikes by VC has already hit hundreds of thousands of passengers. This is completely inappropriate because a wage increase demand of more than 20 percent is unique within Lufthansa and across

Joerg Handwerg

As this affects many people, many clients, it would of course be very, very desirable to be able to end this conflict in a different manner. But for that you need a compromise, and compromise is only possible when one is prepared to move in the direction of the other

Joerg Handwerg

As things stand at present, we will have to keep striking as there is no basis for negotiations or arbitration with Lufthansa at the

Ruxandra Haradau-Doeser

Investors trusted him on this. He is in a difficult position. If he were to yield, in my opinion he would lose the trust of investors and the

Michael Fuchs

It can't be that hundreds of thousands are taken hostage for the interest of a small

Joerg Handwerg

What annoys me the most is that everything is so spontaneous, you can't make any plans. Notice such as, for example, In three days we will cancel this and this flight,' is not being given, rather from hour-to-hour basically passengers are being told they now cannot

Harry Hohmeister

It is not only that acute damage is occurring, but also in the mid-term booking numbers. We are, of course, noticing that customer behaviour is changing. On every strike day we will lose millions of

Barbara Clingan

Now my patience is slowly ending. I've been flying for years, but this is unbelievable. No, no more

Dieter Eidt

It's not pleasant. I believe that they are demanding something that can't be fulfilled and which is

Harry Hohmeister

Not only have we suffered severe damage (from the strike), but we're also noticing from mid-term booking numbers that customer behaviour is

Joerg Handwerg

Lufthansa management has shown no sign that it is willing to move and has not provided an offer that could serve as a basis for

Bettina Volkens - Deutsche Lufthansa

It is incomprehensible that the union is calling for the biggest pay increase for the most well-paid group of

Rupert Pearce - Inmarsat

Basically we now have the top three European airline fleets in the bag, which is a wonderful position to be in, with DLH (Lufthansa), this third airline and

Kenny Jacobs

We think and we hope it will happen for some airline in

David O'Brien - Ryanair

We are open indeed to any airline tapping into our network, even

John Strickland

But Ryanair is likely to succeed soon, though at this time Lufthansa would be a less likely

Carsten Spohr - Deutsche Lufthansa

My preference is to feed our long haul with Lufthansa. My second preference is (Lufthansa's budget carrier) Eurowings. My third preference is to use other

Daniel Flohr

If the employer's behavior doesn't change, we will strike on two days next

Martin Leutke

A call to strike because of a disagreement over temporary contracts is incomprehensible and

Sylvia De la Cruz

We have to assume that this is a stalling tactic and therefore we cannot avoid calling for industrial action for

Stefan Pichler - Air Berlin

I want to reassure every customer that we continue to operate all our flights as scheduled. We will communicate future schedule changes as a result of the forthcoming restructure well in

Michael Gierse

Traditional volume catering is shrinking due to the low-cost carriers and buy on board is not as good as expected, because passengers often bring their own sandwiches on

Gerald Khoo - Liberum Capital

We struggle to see how contract terms could simultaneously deliver an acceptable positive return for Air Berlin while also delivering a suitably competitive cost base for

Michael O'Leary - Ryanair

The German airports will then be trying to encourage Ryanair to open more routes. So I think it's likely to speed up our growth in

Michael Gierse

But it will only delay them and not prevent them

The market potential for the commercial use of drones in the wind energy sector is growing

Carsten Spohr - Deutsche Lufthansa

It complements the group of joint ventures Lufthansa has around the world, and it was always our strategic goal to have a joint venture partner in the top five intercontinental markets, and today's joint venture completes that

Carsten Spohr - Deutsche Lufthansa

There is infrastructure restrictions in China, especially when it comes to slots at the big, important airports in Shanghai and in Beijing and also when it comes to entry points on the Chinese border. Joining forces between Air China and Lufthansa will help us to optimize our schedules and, therefore, reduce those infrastructure restrictions which exist without disadvantaging the

Willie Walsh - International Airlines Group

If we can facilitate that for the customers in a way that makes sense that doesn't increase our costs or complexity ... then we want to do

We expect the high pricing pressure to continue... This is why we will push on our efficiency increases even more

Carsten Spohr - Deutsche Lufthansa

The terrorist attacks in Europe and also the increasing political and economic uncertainties are having a tangible impact on passenger volumes. The forward bookings, in particular for our long-haul services to Europe have declined

Michael O'Leary - Ryanair

This modest 4 percent increase in (first quarter) profit to 256 million euro ($281 million) is in line with previous

Jarrod Castle - UBS

The trading environment has taken a turn for the worse due to geopolitics and recent events which means it is likely that only a marginal amount of the net benefit will be retained. While Lufthansa will generate nearly 1 billion euros of fuel tailwind, we think based on current guidance the majority of the tailwind will be passed on to

Simone Menne

We will look into the strategy and consider the size of the freighter fleet, and further measures of the cargo business

Carsten Spohr - Deutsche Lufthansa

That is a major challenge under the current security provisions, and must now be the priority. And in view of this, we have agreed with Brussels Airlines to give ourselves a further three months to conclude our negotiations on the acquisition terms and devise the migration concept

We had a buffer from the first few months of the year, so even if we have some weaker months, our guidance remains the

Practical matters, what goes where, which facilities can we use – they were the questions during the first few days. Now we think about the people, are they ready to return to work? How will employees react to this situation, because for many it will be the first time they are

Dianne Feinstein

This is one more incident that could have brought down an airliner, and it's completely unacceptable. A near-miss of 200 feet should serve as a stark reminder of the dangers posed by reckless drone

Giovanni Magi

If one of the two pilots gets out of the cockpit, he or she is temporarily replaced by a flight attendant, so if one of the occupants of the cockpit has any problem, the other can take action. This rule was already mandatory in the US and China at the time of the accident, and many airlines around the world had already adopted it – but not Lufthansa, which Germanwings belongs

According to the information available, the main hypothesis is that the crash was caused by a technical failure on the plane. But the answer will be found in the examination of the black

Markus Wahl - Vereinigung Cockpit

We have called on our members to be available to fly again at any moment. Lufthansa however must know that despite this verdict, this is not how personnel problems are

John Strickland

Many airlines will increasingly get benefits of low fuel as hedges unwind. This will certainly bring into sharp focus areas of high cost in the legacy airlines such as labour and it comes at a time when Ryanair is piling on the competitive pressure in Germany with massively expanded

Jonathan Wober

Ultimately, fares are down to the balance between supply and demand. No matter which way you look at the oil price and hedging issue, low cost carriers always have the advantage because of their lower fares and

Thankfully, we have very loyal customers. Although we notice a decline in bookings with every announced strike, fortunately it's only for a short time. Still, it's a loss of reputation and obviously something we'd like to put behind us as quickly as

We have lost millions of Euros. Even the announcement of a strike causes damage – because of cancelled bookings. Of course we are going to check every possible way of bringing the strike under control. Our legal department is checking this, but at the moment I can't say anything

Klaus Walher - Deutsche Lufthansa

As far as we can see right now, about a quarter of flights leaving Frankfurt have been affected. The union said the action would end at 13H (CET) and we hope we'll be able to take all passengers who planned a trip today to their

It's important that Lufthansa makes a substantial offer. As it stands now, we haven't received a single serious offer from them, but a solution is most likely to be found during

Robert Revet

The offer Lufthansa made cannot even be called an offer. They only demand, and what they demand is: More work, less

Erhard Ott

That we have to launch a strike during the holiday period is not ideal. I'm grateful to the passengers for their understanding. We will try to end this dispute as soon as

Lufthansa has promised us negotiations without any pre-conditions. That means that our demands of the last few days are met and I would like to thank everyone

Our strategy will benefit from gaining a large hub in Switzerland. And customers will now have more choice of destinations and where they can change planes within one integrated airline. We'll also access new markets with a a strong network of African destinations in addition to our

We are confident that these slots that will be made available will be taken up by new market entrants. People flying on the routes where we had concerns will continue to be offered a choice of

For that to continue, the infrastructure at German airports must improve urgently, otherwise the new jobs will be in Dubai or somewhere

These days there is no alternative, the company needs a strong partner. If, with this bid, they maintain the Swiss destinations and all the routes, then it makes no sense for the Swiss Federal government to keep its 20% holding, and anyway that's not a very significant stake anyway. In addition, I don't think the state should be an investor in an
