BA To Buy Iberia?

Tue Oct 07, 2003 6:43 pm

The KLM-AF merger can result in a wave of takeovers and mergers.

BA and Iberia?
Both airlines are already in good cooperation - Oneworld.
Surely, Iberia has good presence in South America, BA in North America, Middle East and Asia.

How much A is there is Airliners Net ? 0 or nothing ?

Would the IB long haul aircraft need to have premier economy then?

I don't think it's going to happen, at least with the current treaties with the US. Spain has practically open skies, while with UK there is the more restrictive Bermuda II. IB codeshares with AA in some intercontinental flights, while BA can't.
I see probably increased cooperation, but no merger or buyout.

It won't happen. They will co-operate in these kind of routes but BA is not interested to buy Iberia. That's what I have read ...
Has decidido puntualidad, has decidido Iberia ;)
