Etihad denies that it is pushing for new CEO of Air Berlin

Germany's second-biggest airline Air Berlin has denied a report that its major shareholder Etihad Airways is pushing for the German carrier to find a new permanent chief executive quickly, Reuters has reported. A report by a local magazine said that James Hogan, chief executive of Abu Dhabi-based Etihad, wanted a manager at the helm of Air Berlin who had more aviation experience than current chief Hartmut Mehdorn. Etihad, which owns almost 30% of Air Berlin, said it saw the report as "extremely scurrilous and irresponsible." "Etihad Airways and Air Berlin have a very strong relationship which is starting to show positive progress. Both airlines are wholly committed to its long-term success," a spokesman for Etihad said.
