Air Berlin aircrafts are parked on the tarmac at Berlin Tegel airport, in this August 18, 2011 file picture. Loss-making German airline Air Berlin on November 14, 2013 abandoned its target of breaking even at the operating level this year and said it would slash costs further, amid cutthroat competition and a muted economic recovery. In the third quarter through September, Air Berlin posted a smaller-than-expected 14 percent gain in EBIT to 115.6 million euros, because as warm weather in Europe meant fewer people booked flights at short notice.
