To the contrary, I wouldn't die of shock if when the chips settle we see a combined USAA with IAG holding a 25% stake
|Quoting BigGSFO (Reply 6):|
How will BA react? With open arms. IAG has already indicated they might be interested as an investor. The substantial domestic feed, especially along the east coast, will increase traffic and business contracts. We would probably also see increased traffic to secondary airports in the UK, as well as a boost to Spain on IB.
|Quoting avek00 (Reply 7):|
Odds are that at the time BA/IB and AA hammered out the Joint Business Agreement, the European side was probably able to extract far better terms due to AA's then-precarious position. While it's highly unlikely that US would insist upon scrapping the JBA, it's entirely possible that Parker would demand substantial revisions to the arrangement that would potentially compromise IAG's financial interests.
