Emirates is not a good comparison. They only have a good product on their A380s (but I don't like their exaggerated first class bling bling, LH new F or SQ R are way better and more stylish). Whilst on their 77W, the 10abreast Eco is awful narrow, and they have one of the aviation world's shitest products on their A332 in all classes, definitely worse than this new AB one.

This ow livery definitely looks a bit different than other ow liveries. The proportions are a bit different, and the "member of" text is barely visible.

Meanwhile, Air Berlin performed much worse than expected in 2011:
Ebit 2011 -247 Mio. Euro, Equity -50%.

Access denied: Air Berlin refuses to board disabled group

A group of disabled passengers traveling from Moscow to Dusseldorf were not allowed to board their flight by an Air Berlin pilot, despite having booked tickets and receiving confirmation from the airline a month in advance.

The passengers were part of a delegation traveling to Germany to attend a seminar – ironically, to learn about Germany’s experience in creating a society accessible to disabled people.

Six delegation members who are wheelchair users, plus another five who were assisting them, were unable to board the flight after the Air Berlin pilot claimed the plane was not equipped to carry that many people in wheelchairs.

MP Vladimir Krupennikov, the delegation leader and a wheelchair user himself, said the airline refused to let them board at the very last minute.

"At the very last moment, after we had passed passport control and customs, and we were waiting at the gate, the pilot in command said he could not take so many wheelchair users on board out of safety considerations and suggested they should be flown out over two days, with two individuals in wheelchairs per flight," said the MP.

Krupennikov also told reporters the group is planning to sue the German carrier.

According to the delegation, the captain showed them a safety guide which stated that only two wheelchair users were allowed on board per flight. However, that was the first time these alleged regulations were mentioned.

Krupennikov said the group had contacted the airline well in advance to make sure they could all fly out together, and to advise the airline that six of the 34 delegates were wheelchair-bound.

“They told us it wouldn’t be a problem, and we have papers to prove it,” Krupennikov said.

After the incident, the group has transferred to another Moscow airport and purchased seats for the entire delegation on an Aeroflot flight.

Air Berlin responded that they acted according to the standing regulations of their company and blamed the group of failing to provide the right information. Only two wheelchair bound passengers are allowed on board at the same time, but they should be registered before the flight.

“The two passengers were registered as passengers with reduced mobility. Their flight was approved,” Air Berlin said. “Four passengers registered as passengers which would need wheelchairs to the plane. And their flight was also approved. But at the gates it turned out that all six were passengers with reduced mobility. That is why the pilot took a decision, based on our security rules that only two of them can fly”.

Sorry, but I'm with AirBerlin on this one! I know that many other airlines have the same policy (no more than two wheelchairs), incl. Qantas and Jetstar! I do believe AB's statement that the other 4 passengers only noted that they needed wheelchairs TO the plane. I can't see how anyone at AB (not to mention the online booking system) would fail on that.

So, AB is not to blame here - some passengers simply tried to be cheeky and smart.

Air Berlin and Jat formalise cooperation

Air Berlin and Jat to codeshare to the United States


A large scale delegation from Air Berlin will jet into the Serbian capital this afternoon to formalise ties with Jat Airways, the German airline has confirmed to local media. The news comes a week after the Serbian carrier signed code share agreements with Etihad Airways. Etihad owns a 29% stake in Air Berlin, Germany’s second largest airline. The delegation, which will arrive on an Air Berlin Airbus A330 in Belgrade, will meet with Jat Airways CEO Vladimir Ognjenović. The two sides already cooperate and have a special prorate agreement in place.

Jat and Air Berlin will sign codeshare agreements which will come into effect over the course of this summer.

- Air Berlin will place its own codes on Jat flights to Berlin and Dusseldorf.

- In return, Jat will place its “JU” code on several Air Berlin flights within Europe as well as Chicago and New York.

The United States is a major market for Jat due to a large Serbian diaspora residing in the country. Chicago has the second largest Serbian population behind Belgrade. Stephan Nagel, Senior Vice President for Alliances and Cooperation at Air Berlin said, "Codeshare agreements allow airlines to realise mutual synergies and to extend their global coverage by means of their combined route networks. Our guests thus benefit from a more attractive route network and a comfortable and seamless travel experience". Air Berlin has codeshare agreements with fourteen airline partners worldwide.

Serbia currently holds a category two rating from the United Sates Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), barring carriers from the country from operating services to the States. However, according to FAA guidelines, an airline from a category two country can place its codes on a foreign airline which hails from a category one country holder (though it cannot place its codes on a US carrier). Croatia Airlines successfully placed its codes on US Airways flights last summer. Serbia is currently in the process of obtaining a category one ranking from the United States, which it held until 2004.

Air Berlin considers splitting in two - report

FRANKFURT, May 25 (Reuters) - Air Berlin's management is considering splitting the group in two, German magazine Focus reported on Sunday, citing remarks by one of the company's senior managers.

Air Berlin could be divided into a unit that offers traditional scheduled flights and another that flies to tourist destinations, the magazine reported, citing senior vice president Detlef Altmann as saying such plans were being "examined".

Air Berlin was not immediately available for comment.

The company, Germany's No.2 airline after Lufthansa , earlier this month said it was looking at all options, including its business model, as it prepares to launch a fundamental restructuring aimed at restoring the loss-making airline to profitability.

Air Berlin, in which Gulf carrier Etihad owns a 29.2 percent stake, has reported annual losses for five out of the past six years after rapid expansion left it saddled with debt.

Focus did not provide details on how splitting the company up would help improve its performance.

It may very well help it better differentiate its product for both markets.

A branding change may well be required for one of the units, or at least some way of making its market position clear. Even using a brand like "AB Leisure" for the charter and vacation oriented ops would be a start.

One thing is for sure, whatever it is doing now needs to change.

I've always thought they were a low-cost carrier, but their fares were nowhere competitive as Ryanair or easyJet. To this day I still am not sure what they're going for.
