Lufthansa seems to be in the drivers seat for now but given it’s near monopoly on aviation in Germany it needs to try to restrict itself.

Air Berlin’s assets include their planes, profitable routes, slots at congested airports and the topbonus loyalty program (which is majority owned by Etihad).

If you have topbonus miles I’d use them now but I would not panic as the program will most likely survive in some form (though with a different award chart likely).

– Club Carlson has an Advance Purchase rate accessible with the code ADVPURCH that often gives 10%-20% off otherwise available rates, make sure to only use it when your travel plans are fixed!
