Irish newspaper Irish Independent yesterday reported that there will be two challengers to the Aer Lingus management buy-out, one being a consortium of pilots; the other being Ryanair's Michael O'Leary. It is expected that O'Leary himself will bid, not Ryanair....he plans to keep the two companies running separately, but he will run both of them.....

The two airlines might be a little more compatible than it seems, now that EI are currently stripping themselves down to the low cost model. He might also have the intention of doing what he did to Buzz though, which would be a distaster. Hard to call, but don't think it would be passed by the Irish government.
