Hey, didn't KLM, LH
, SAS etc... received guarantees from their government, even the private ones, after 9/11 ??????
KLM may be 55 % of the SIZE of AF
but that 's not what is important in a merging process... the lasts results of KL
and its financial situation make it worth 15 % of AF
...evaluation made by financial specialists. (wouldn't the KL
shareholders receive 15% of AF
in exchange of their KLM shares ? )
How could AF
keep out the LCC from the domestic market with the European Laws ? All the airlines operating on the French domestic market are loosing money, including AF
, because there is in France the strongest competitor for any airline that doesn't exist anywhere else : the TGV...
You must explain me the thing with Airbus...
!!! Does LH
have the same "advantages" when they order an Airbus, just because Germany, UK, and Spain also hold parts in the Consortium ?
In that case, why do they order so many Boeings, including AF
Actually, it is completely the opposite... AF
in the past was kind of forced to buy at the full price some Airbus we didn't really need...: the A300, then the A340, the A330 for Air Inter... )
