I was thinking, seeing the british and american governments are keeping the big 4 airlines dominance at heathrow, especialy by refusing the bmi and united code sharing, why dont virgin and bmi merge! this would be perfect, virgin is equaly liked as bmi in the uk and europe, while it has the recognition in the states that bmi needs. this would finaly give uk travellers an alternative to the evil giant british airways. bmi and virgin dont really compete, and they would create the ultimate heathrow hub, it would also create a stronger star alliance pressence at heathrow if virgin where to join. this would soooo work, and it would allow virgin to stop messing around with other airlines that just dont work(`sun`-being shut down, and `express`-being sold off, and `blue`-going to be killed by impulse).
its just an idea, what do you all think???
