Lufthansa says partnership with Alitalia

Hook-up 'still possible' but not with government involvement

(ANSA) - Rome, October 30 - Lufthansa said Tuesday a partnership with Alitalia "is still possible" but it "does not plan to invest in the company together with the government".
    The government intends to take a stake in Alitalia to turn it back into a flag carrier along with Ferrovie dello Stato (FS), which will make a key investment.
    The government's plans may fall foul of EU State aid rules.
