Lufthansa would like to offer €200 million for Air Berlin, but the German airline also wants to take over the operational costs, which will be incurred until the sale has been completed. According to insiders -the sale can take up to three months-, so the operational costs can go up to €100 million. The total price that Lufthansa will then pay for the bankrupt airline could be around €300 million.
