Sad to hear this, I've flown Air Berlin a few times, and my impressions of this airline were very positive.

Only a matter of time before they're gobbled up by LH. It'll give them a big boost in building up DUS and BER.

Maybe not all of it.. I am a great fan of Niki Lauda.

More evidence that any really thrilling flypast or maneuver in a commercial airliner (With pax in it) will result in an investigation by the airline/authorities (Simply because the rules simply preclude any such fun flying, and rightly so)...

Surprised that a commercial pilot will pull such a stunt, even if he stuck to the letter of the rules, and the control tower approved it...

Still I would have loved to have been onboard...
