My LH sales rep was in the office yesterday. I asked her about BBI and TATL flights. She told me that LH has no plans for TATL out of TXL/BBI in the short to medium term as CO/DL are already in the market and there isn't enough demand.

But even with LH not going TATL they should be bigger than EasyJet.
I could see some expansion on the Berlin-IST stretch for example.
There is a huge Turkish community in Berlin.
Also some int. cont. to India or China should be an option

I would imagine that the purpose of this comment to Forbes was to attract investor interest so I wouldn't read too much in to it. Easyjet are already one of the main players in the Berlin market though are they not?
Currently Berlin is not exactly Lufthansa's largest market. Is the move to BBI likely to increase the LH presence there?
On a related note, do the Berlin area airports continue to attract a large number of cross-boarder Polish customers now that there are more low-cost links out of Poland?
Sit back, relax and enjoy your flight with us today.

Quoting DALCE (Reply 1): Also LH will start a massive operation ex BBI
I just don't see that - the market simply isn't there. Could be that they'll put whatever comes out of the Germanwings/TUIfly merger onto routes to/from Berlin, but LH mainline? Considering that DUS only now got the first longhauls, and HAM, very likely far more profitable than Berlin could ever be, doesn't have any (LH longhauls, that is)?
