I wanted to use the term 'joint ventures' but didn't want to confuse people.
I'm talking about businesses with different airlines holding a stake. I find it interesting when a business is held by competing airlines, e.g. AF, LH, IB have stakes in Amadeus. I suppose if everyone is doing well from the venture then who cares?!!
Opodo is another example that comes to mind, as it is owned by tonnes of European airlines.
