Boeing possible for Alitalia, not Lufthansa -Toninelli

Solution by year's end says transport min

(ANSA) - Berlin, September 18 - Boeing is a possible partner for troubled Italian airline Alitalia while Lufthansa is "not among the more strategic partners," Transport Minister Danilo Toninelli said Tuesday.
    Boeing, he said "can certainly be considered a partner, considering the fact that it builds plane and we need a lot of them," he said.
    Asked about Lufthansa, the minister said: "Today I would not talk of airlines in particular, even though I think Lufthansa is not among the more strategic partners".
    Toninelli said "I think that October may be a month in which some issues can be solved, but certainly by the end of the year we will have a solution".
