The Economic Times reports that German airline, Air Berlin has named Pichler as their new chief executive to take over a restructuring programme as it tries to return to profit.
Air Berlin, Germany’s second-largest airline and 29% owned by Abu-Dhabi based Etihad, said yesterday that their Chief Executive was standing down at his own request and will be replaced by Stefan Pichler on February 1st, 2015.
When Stefan Pichler arrived two years ago he was not met by any of Fiji Airways Executive Management, he carried all his own bags, and immediately got on with the job of putting the airline on the right track. This included disposing of the team of overpriced consultants that his fast talking predecessor could not operate without.
Stefan Pichler will be a great loss to Fiji Airways, and the Pensioners (who still have a large investment in Fiji Airways) believe that Stefan Pichler should make the final decision on who his replacement should be and the relevant Minister should have no input.
Shameless and without a conscience, every one of them…

Opposition Leader Ro Teimumu Kepa has welcomed the decision by the Pacific Islands Forum to lift suspension of the Fiji government’s membership of the Forum. She urged the government of Fiji to apply its fundamental policy of inclusiveness in its approach to the Forum as the leading regional political
Ro Teimumu said that preconditions set by the Fiji government for rejoining the Forum were unacceptable These are based on a demand for banishment from the Forum of Fiji’s major friends and partners Australia and New Zealand. This demand is because Australia and New Zealand, as Forum members, strongly
objected to the military takeover by Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama of Fiji’s elected government in 2006. The takeover broke the rules of the Forum. All the other Forum member countries also objected to Prime Minister Bainimarama’s actions. These were widely condemned by the international community.
Ro Teimumu said the current government cannot erase the illegal actions of 2006. These will forever remain part of Prime Minister Bainimarama’s legacy and he has to come to terms with that.
“We have concluded our elections, flawed though we believe it was, and we have a Parliament with an elected government. A clear democratic priority must be the reconstruction of our relations with our traditional friends and partners in the Pacific, including Australia and New Zealand,” Ro Teimumu said.
“Quite aside from substantial aid and humanitarian support, both are the largest sources of tourism for Fiji, and major providers of foreign investment. Close proximity, people-to-people relationships and historical connections are also important. Australia and New Zealand are genuine friends of our country.
“For the Fiji government to link its re-entry into the Forum to unreasonable terms designed to punish Australia and New Zealand, is nothing but mean spirited and wrong. It will also create unnecessary divisions and tensions in the immediate region.”
Ro Teimumu has called on the Government to exercise good sense and sound judgment towards the Pacific Islands Forum. “The Opposition would be happy to work with the Fiji government in the re-building process for the benefit of the region and all its peoples,” she said.
