Virgin Fertile For Martinair!

Thu Dec 14, 2000 5:17 am

Rumours are going that Virgin will start a codeshare-agreement with the Dutch Martinair.
This only on Amerca flights.
Is this a start for Virgin to buy Martinair for 50%?
Which are now in hands of KLM.
We will know very soon!

They (VS) already code-share with Continental on some UK-US routes.

I think it is just a test to look how they work together.

and than in the future VS will buy the 50% (now owned by KLM) so the take over Martinair.

That's why.
