FRANKFURT (Reuters) - Lufthansa (LHAG.DE) has no interest in participating in a government-led restructuring of Italian carrier Alitalia, Chief Executive Carsten Spohr said.
“We will not be co-investor with the government in an airline that is being restructured,” he said on an analyst call to discuss third-quarter financial results.
Separately, CFO Ulrik Svensson said that while Lufthansa continuously assesses whether all of its businesses have a fair amount of synergies with the group’s airlines it currently had nothing new to report regarding disposals.
Several media outlets had reported that it was considering a sale of its catering unit LSG.
