BERLIN (Reuters) – British Airways is no longer interested in stepping in with an offer for the Niki unit of insolvent Air Berlin, should a planned sale to Lufthansa not be approved, a source familiar with the matter said on Thursday. British Airways, owned by IAG, had also bid for Niki, but lost out to Lufthansa and a report last week said it had restated its interest after the European Commission signalled concerns over the Lufthansa deal. However, IAG has now dropped out, because a deal is no longer attractive, the person said. IAG and Air Berlin declined to comment.
