Aer Lingus

Aer Lingus, the Irish flag carrier, is joining British Airways and Iberia as part of the International Airlines Group. And in a significant change of policy, it took its longtime rival Ryanair to make it happen. Here is a report: http://www.telegraph.co.uk/finance/newsbysector/transport/11730942/Ryanair-to-allow-IAG-takeover-of-Aer-Lingus.html
The fiercely competitive Ryanair, Europe's biggest carrier in terms of passenger numbers, is selling its minority share which it had tried to lever into a takeover. BA's corporate owner, IAG, previously took over the financially troubled Spanish airline Iberia and its subsidiary Vueling. Now it will be one of the major airline groups internationally. I expect to see more co-ordination, especially on flights through Dublin, while the various wings continue to maintain their identities.
