Lufthansa states JetBlue stake 'not for sale'

Lufthansa CEO, Stephan Gemkow, stated the carrier will maintain its stake for JetBlue, commenting: “We’re sorry but JetBlue is not for sale" (Bloomberg, 29-Jul-2010). He continued: "Even if, theoretically, there was a split with JetBlue, we’d be well-placed because of our US access through Continental’s Newark hub.”
