Air France-KLM says weighing Alitalia cap hike

PARIS (Reuters) - Air France-KLM (PAR:AF) said it has not yet decided whether or not it will take part in a capital increase at Alitalia as part of an emergency plan to keep the Italian carrier operating.

The Franco-Dutch airline will likely decide on Monday following an Alitalia shareholder meeting, a spokesman said on Friday.

"The decision by the Air France-KLM board members to support the emergency plan does not in any way presuppose our decision on whether to subscribe to the capital increase," he said.
