|Quoting FlyCaledonian (Reply 5):|
A dark horse for a BA deal in my book would be AY. finnair is slowly building HEL as good Asian gateway from Europe. Indeed, longterm a BA/AY/IB deal would produce carriers with good Asian (via HEL), North American, African and Middle Eastern (via LHR) and Latin American (via MAD) hubs.
|Quoting JoFMO (Reply 1):|
BA and IB are the perfect fit (networkwise from my point of view at least).
And yes I think BA has to come up with an offer for IB or they will loose them. There are strong indications that IB is looking for husband. So if BA is not interested somebody else will.

don't think that BA or IB necessarily NEED to mege yet, but it is definitely getting to that, what with such strong other airline groupings in Europe. I for one hope that they do!
