A woman stands at the exhibition stand of Air Berlin at the ITB tourism fair in Berlin, in this March 11, 2009 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.
