Etihad Interested In Aer Lingus Stake

Thu Oct 20, 2011 12:45 pm

According to the Financial Times EY is interested in acquiring the Irish government's 25% stake in EI.

How would this be strategic for EY and would FR sell their stake too?

I would love to see a cage match between EY leadership and EU government and unions.

Is this as well as or instead of their interest in VIR?

Quoting fcogafa (Reply 2):

apparently, they are interested in a deal with Aer Lingus, BMI and Virgin Atlantic
