Qatar Airways: Lufthansa seeks to kill competition
- Qatar: Sunday, October 21 - 2012 at 02:32
Qatar Airways chief executive Akbar al-Baker has said that had Lufthansa not proved so hostile to the growth of GCC carriers, he'd have contemplated joining Deutsche Lufthansa's Star Alliance, Bloomberg has reported. "My first code-share with a European carrier was with Lufthansa, but unfortunately their strategy is to kill competition," he said. "It is to shun Gulf carriers, and I think they have lost in this very lucrative alliance chess game." The Middle East's second-largest airline joined the Oneworld alliance last week after receiving overtures from British Airways that contrasted with the attitude of long-standing partner Lufthansa, al-Baker said.
