Question Operated by (AB) Air Berlin on behalf of (OS) Austrian

In relation to Air Berlin bankruptcy proceedings, how risky are the flights operated by Air Berlin on behalf of Austrian?

I have an October 19, 22 itinerary that involves flights OS 167 and OS 168, between Vienna and Hamburg.

Should I worry?

Thank you.

No. You should not care whom they are operated by; you have an OS ticket for a flight on an OS flight number. There's always a chance that any flight can get cancelled for whatever operational reason. In that case OS will have to and will actually deal with it.

The VIE-HAM is the last flight of the day. If it gets cancelled, I am stuck.

If the HAM-VIE flight is off, I am missing a connection to another last flight of the day.

Is there a worry that the flights are more likely to get cancelled due to the bankruptcy, rather than normal reasons?

The LH group flights operated by AB are not affected by the bankruptcy. Your OS flight will be fine.

Only flights with AB code are affected.

These are flights AB167 and AB168 with OS marketing code-share.
