Air Berlin: “Although it’s too early to celebrate, we can clearly see our “Shape & Size” programme beginning to produce results – we’re starting to step up our efficiency and reap the benefit of lower costs ahead of our competition. And as a result, nearly all the indicators of significance for our business are pointing in the right direction,” Hartmut Mehdorn, CEO. Source: Company statement, 15-May-2012.
