Lufhansa and GermanWings?

Lufthansa will merge its European and German domestic routes under a new low cost brand from next year, hoping to improve profits and fend off growing competition from low cost carriers.  The whole operation will be structured around the current Germanwings set-up based at Cologne and will encompass about 90 aircraft.

All Lufthansa flights within Germany and Europe, excluding those from its hubs in Frankfurt and Munich, will be merged into what will be a newly branded operation.  The service is expected to carry over 18m passengers in its first year. www.lufthansa.com
