Lauda Air - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (192 words)
Lauda Air is an airline based in Austria.
Lauda Air was founded in 1978 by former Formula One driver Niki Lauda.
On May 26, 1991, Lauda Air Flight 004, operated by a Boeing 767-300 plane, was lost over Thailand after an uncommanded reverser deployment, with 223 dead.
Lauda Air 2000 (886 words)
But very soon tragedy came to the way of Lauda Air, when one of their Boeing 767s, being only one and a half year of age, exploded over the jungle of Thailand because of a defect reverse.
For a more solid base meanwhile Lauda had decided to sell a 35.9 per cent package to his former rival AUA becoming the major shareholder with Lauda`s private foundation holding 29.0 and Lufthansa 20.0 per cent, while the rest of 15.1 per cent was widely spread.
Lauda himself, as the president of the company being responsible for all their financial affairs, wanted to rehabilitate them by deep cuts into their budgets, but the management of the AUA did not want to follow that reasonable way.
