JetBlue TrueBlue - Jetblue and AA
Jan 13, 12, 9:33 am
Since DL and TPG are weighing bids for AA (http://dealbook.nytimes.com/2012/01/12/delta-and-tpg-weigh-bids-for-american-airlines-parent/), is Jetblue considering something similar? Afterall, AA and B6 have an interline and mileage accrual agreement. Maybe B6 will join OneWorld?

Private equity groups including TPG are likely looking for a smaller airline partner to merge into AA as part of their bid. B6 is one of the top three contenders after AS and before VX. However negotiations with the management and board of the smaller airline(s) will likely take a long time.
B6 with OneWorld, maybe. B6 bidding for AA, god I hope not... for B6's sake.
