Things seem to have gone very quiet.

Who do you think will pick up SAS 20%?

If LH want those 20% SK hold in BD, then they will also get it, no doubt. But some people here say that LH are not too happy anymore about their 80% in BD. I think a lot will happen regarding this merger and VS and SQ and all.

LH should sell their stake in BD to Virgin ,cash in and invest that money into TK - much more interesting ..They have already a joint venture with TK in Sunexpress,which is very profitable and well managed.
LHR is not that attractive any longer for LH .

why not? (i didn't hear about that idea before)

Are TK looking for investors to the extent that LH would want to be involved?

My idea of an ideal solution would for for LH to hand control of BD to VS in return for an equity stake in the new merged entity. SQ would no doubt be willing unload it's stake in VS to LH at a reasonable price thereby making LH the controlling shareholder. The combinded VS/BD could then be invited into Star Alliance. SRB could continue to be the front-man/media whore for the new VS.

Or perhaps they could sell BMI to BA and VS, that would seem a better solution as don't think VS could do it on its own!

Competition rules would probably dictate that BD won't be allowed to be taken over by BA!

BMI has value in its LHR slot portfolio, Virgin would be the logical merger partner. SQ wants out of VA, a solution needs to be found for gettig SQ out and LH in.
