this would be a bloodbath in terms of brand recognition and corporate identity. if there's any chance on name changing within the Virgin Group, expect that all the airlines under its mantle will be called something like "Virgin Airlines" or something similar.

Quoting Kleiner (Thread starter): 1. If SQ sells its stake in VS, would VA and Pacific Blue be rebranded "Virgin Australia" and "Virgin Blue" respectively?
V Australia would become Virgin Australia so fast your head would spin
Pacific Blue I'm not so sure.
I think it unlikely that DJ & VA would merge, as I don't think they would want to give up the Virgin Blue brand and they decided years ago NOT to use the blue/red joke outside Oz and the local Pacific area, that's why we have V[irgin] Australia, now.
