Good to hear, that probably took a few conversations between CEOs. Wonder what concessions were made?

Speaking of Collins, http://www.thegazette.com/subject/news/business/norwegian-air-honors-rockwell-collins-founder-20180309

Interesting. TFA says:

On Sept. 22, 1933, with eight employees and $29,000 in capital, Collins Radio was incorporated.

After facing financial difficulties, the company was sold to Rockwell International in 1973 and renamed Rockwell Collins.

Rockwell shareholders recently approved the $23 billion purchase of the company by United Technologies Corp.

I remember them when they were making (excellent) ham radio equipment.

Glad to see them prosper.
Wake up to find out that you are the eyes of the world
The heart has its beaches, its homeland and thoughts of its own
Wake now, discover that you are the song that the morning brings
The heart has its seasons, its evenings and songs of its own
