Re: Air France - KLM

During all these years where AF had these important labor and financial issues, KLM's folks were almost silent. Now that Ben Smith is trying to improve the overall situation of AF and the efficiency of AF-KLM, they are being very vocal against this. It is troublesome for the future of the group. The...

According to EU regulations, both ownership and effective control must be mainly in the hands of an EU entity. I am quite sure that IAG has its legal team working on this 24/7.
