20% Of BMI Up For Sale - Who Will Buy Them?

Thu Jan 27, 2005 8:45 am

Lufthansa has announced they are selling their 20% stake in BMI and Scandanavian have advised they do not intend to invest anymore into the airline. Also Virgin Atlantic and BA have advised they have no interest in taking a stake in the airline.

Who elso do you think maybe interested in investing in them?

I don't know why but I am wondering in Emirates might buy a stake in them, will give them greater access to the UK market and complement services within Europe and North America.
