Well spotted Vertrek!

Etihad is a cool calm mover behind all these changing influences and directions. They move in, take a financial share, influence the strategy and direction of that Airline to match in with its own ambitions, and to co-operation.

They clearly have the finance, and you can see a short and medium term strategy. I wonder what the long term would be…as they will have part ownership of so many Airlines, They tend to add to their shares later, as in Virgin Australia…

And what of their intentions re Skyteam, recently rebuffed by the CEO?

Mysterious goings on i think, beneficial, and looking rosey on the outside for Skyteam, but who really will have control in the end?
