    Default Nonrevs Beware..Air Berlin Ceases Ops Soon.. Use Wizz, Easy

    After months of uncertainty Air Berlin has announced it will be ending all flights in a matter of the weeks.
    The bankrupt airline - Germany’s second largest and Europe's 10th biggest overall - says it's preparing to stop all services by October 28 "at the latest".
    In a letter to its employees on Monday, the airline said that flights under the airline code AB "according to the current state of things, will no longer be possible."

    Flights operated by its subsidiaries; Niki, an Austrian budget airline, and LG Walter, a German regional airline, will continue.
    Air Berlin is currently in talks with Lufthansa (German’s biggest carrier) and UK-based Easyjet about selling parts of its business. The company said in the letter that "in a few days we'll know more" about this.

    Right. They did it because they knew they were on the Outs... Norwegian will likely hire for their long hauls.
