“Nonetheless, I don’t think you have any evidence whatsoever to say that BA’s number is somehow up, especially as they are now part of a larger group which is actively looking to expand and purchase other airlines.”
I’m not saying that, which is why I commented on the average of 43 years, could mean BA could last for another 9 months or be there in 120 years.
It’s about the relative agility of a corporation to the velocity of market changes and disruption.
Being a 600kg bear comes with plusses and minuses.
I think you missed the point, but it doesn’t matter, it will be what it will be.
