For those who are able to read German:

CEO Weber told FTD Germany that he and Robert Milton, CEO of AC, are willing to help UA with a loan of approx. USD 200mn., in the case of Varig no amount was mentioned. As indicated earlier, at least LH is not willing to buy shares in UA.
Furthermore LH and UA negotiated a much more intensive cooperation on the transatlantic routes (whatever that means), that will bring UA an additional USD 90mn. turnover per year.
The loan will be granted by LH and AC directly and not via Star Alliance.
Another quote from CEO Weber during a meeting of Star Alliance CEOs in Rio de Janeiro: If shareholder value would have been the only thing I apply managing LH, UA would have gone bankrupt years ago.
Interesting...

I don´t know if this was mentioned yet, but Varig´s president resigned last night.

Currently UA seems to be the main case, as, if I understand correctly, Varig still needs to negotiate a financial restructuring with all its stakeholders. Only then a loan would be granted. In the case of UA cash should flow rather promptly.
Thanx!

Regards

Andreas
