LATEST: Berlin Brandenburg Airport (BER) to open March 17

(Reuters) - The opening of Berlin's new airport has been pushed back nine months to March 17 after problems with fire safety systems, dealing an embarrassing blow to the German capital and angering airlines.

Manfred Koertgen, the airport's managing director for technical issues, has been sacked and will leave the role on June 1, Berlin mayor Klaus Wowereit told reporters on Thursday.

And I will definitely be among those passengers whose flights will be re-scheduled....

Lufthansa already notified that they will carry on ALL booked flights but land in Tegel instead of booked BER.

Any major rescheduling of time would cause trouble for me as I have another connecting flight to catch. It is unfortunate that Turkish Air customer service reps do not have any clue about this...

Received an email from jet2 for my early July flight stating same flight times in and out of the existing airport. Half expecting delays but that can happen any time.
