Skift Take

How fun would it be to see Branson make over American Airlines? Too much fun, perhaps.

During an interview with NPR today to promote his book, Like a Virgin, Virgin mastermind Richard Branson took a question about possibly buying American Airlines.

“We don’t normally buy other companies or merge with other companies,” Branson answered. “Having said that, it would be quite fun to do something with American Airlines. If anyone from American is listening we’d be happy to get your call.”
