BERLIN (Reuters) - Air Berlin's administrator said renewed talks with Thomas Cook have not led to a sustainable offer for the insolvent carrier's Austria-based Niki unit.
"Renewed talks with the consortium of bidders related to tour operator Thomas Cook have to date not even remotely led to a sustainable alternative offer," Air Berlin administrator Frank Kebekus said on Tuesday.
After a meeting on Tuesday, the creditor committee said Germany's Lufthansa remains the only valid prospective buyer. British Airways parent IAG has already dropped out of the bidding.
