: Delta - Virgin Atlantic Partnership

01-10-2013, 05:20 AM
Subject to regulatory approval Delta will be buying a 49% stake in Virgin Atlantic.

The airlines will not be merging. They will be forming an alliance. Presumably VS will be looking at feeding into DL's domestic network. Virgin has a new domestic UK service that Delta might like to code share. At the moment Delta and Virgin operate out of different terminals at LHR.

They also expect customers to be able to earn and redeem miles on both airlines. However, VS may not be joining SkyTeam.
