Lufthansa threw its weight behind a proposed US$4.2 billion takeover of the Embraer commercial aircraft unit by Boeing, saying it would preserve a level playing field.

To be honest, if you simulate a reservation, at the very end you will see that you will fly via BRU and on with SN. We, aviation geeks, know LH does not fly to ABJ. Why hide it at the beginning ? That's the way LH's reservation is designed. Btw, did I read correctly that the LH Group is leaving Sabre ? A pity for SN. I always thought it was a good marketing tool for smaller airlines (like all other GDS). But I am sure something with much more knowledge of the aviation sector and especially SN will tell me that I am wrong.

UPDATE 1-Germany agrees on rescue package for Lufthansa - Der Spiegel

BERLIN, May 20 (Reuters) - The German government has agreed on final details of a rescue package for struggling airline carrier Lufthansa , Der Spiegel magazine reported on Wednesday.

[...]

Lufthansa said then that the package included a non-voting capital component, known as a so-called silent participation, a secured loan, and a capital increase which may leave the government with a shareholding of up to 25% plus one share. (Reporting by Michael Nienaber, editing by Emma Thomasson, Madeline Chambers)

At least LH now can’t maintain that Belgium shouldn’t get shares in return as that’s what they agreed to in Germany. Think it will go fast now.

Der Spiegel misses one important feature, that was disclosed in Handelsblatt: the German government will get a 20% stake in LH and a convertible bond that can be converted into an addition 5% stake + one share. Only after conversion will it hold a blocking minority.
