LH's Loss Equals EK's Gain

When Thierry Antinori announced he wasn't going to take the top slot at Austrian Airways - there was shock across the Lufthansa hierarchy.

A senior manager not filling his anointed role. But darn it the guy was a Frenchman... Sacre Blue!

Now the true nature is revealed. Thierry a savvy airline man - will be joining Emirates as one of the rapidly expanding airline's top management. His formal position will be Head of Sales. Lufthansa will be the loser for letting a canny manager who has proved his stripes go.

For those who are expecting business as usual from Emirates - I can assure you that EK will not be following anyone's path.

Consider that fair warning.  Take notice here folks
