Die Gerüchteküche brodelt! Reuters berichtet über Übernahme bzw. Fusionsgespräche von Etihad und Lufthansa:

“Germany’s Lufthansa (LHAG.DE) and Etihad Airways are in talks to possibly merge the two airlines, Italian daily Il Messaggero said in an unsourced report on Tuesday.

According to the paper, managers from both companies have for weeks been examining the possibility of Etihad taking a 30-40 percent stake in Lufthansa via a capital increase reserved for the Abu Dhabi state-owned airline.

In a second step, the two airlines would look at a full-blown merger to create a carrier with 97 million passengers a year, the paper said. It added the parties would meet shortly to speed up the talks.”
