– Ryanair is ready to take over the long-haul feet of Alitalia including staff and existing routes in a surprising twist of the Alitalia saga – it is however not interested in an short haul routes

– Ethiopian has submitted a formal bid to buy Arik Air (Review) – if successful Ethiopian would get a foothold in Africa’s second biggest economy (and a lot of headaches from the unruly Nigerian government too)

– Philippines Airlines is busy resuming many of the routes cut in the last 10 years once their A350 are being delivered with Cebu – Los Angeles being a priority
