– struggling Etihad Airways can’t find anyone who wants to merge with them
However all is not lost – Etihad COULD be surviving on its own – it has a strong (yet somewhat tarnished brand), some great planes and products and a committed shareholder base.
– in-flight WiFi DOES make money – if Spirit install it across their fleet the numbers must be strong to the ultra cheap airline to venture into this investment
– the country of South Africa is in love with their national carrier and just sent a check of $407 million for a turnaround plan that hasn’t exactly worked in the last few years it was tried
