Looks like the end is near for Etihad Airways Partners alliance. Alitalia is for sale, and it looks like Ryanair wants to pick up some pieces of it. https://www.washingtonpost.com/worl...dc9a7af29f9_story.html?utm_term=.03790cb31a3a Air Berlin likely will be split up between Lufhtansa, EasyJet and Thomas Cook https://www.reuters.com/article/us-...to-bid-for-air-berlin-next-week-idUSKCN1BH0WQ And Niki Lauda might put a bid in to take Niki off their hands. https://www.reuters.com/article/us-...g-bid-for-air-berlins-niki-unit-idUSKCN1BE0QM That leaves Virgin Australia, Jet Airways, Air Serbia and Air Seychelles in the Etihad Partners alliance. I've no idea of how well (or not well) financially these airlines are doing.
