At some point in the near future, all airlines in the world will be owned by one of the global four: Emirates, Etihad, Qatar, and Turkish Airlines. Turkish just pulled out of a bid for Polish LOT Airlines.
Turkish Airlines is assessing Ireland’s 75-year-old former flag carrier and is “very interested”…though could only hold a 49 percent stake in it because it is based outside EU. It could buy the government’s stake or form a partnership with another airline.
