I knew I should have bought a few shares of SqueezyJet

In the press:

(ShareCast News) - Market chatter surfaced on Friday morning, referencing a newspaper report, regarding a possible bid for easyJet.
The Guardian cited talk among traders of a possible 16bn a share offer for the airline, perhaps from a private equity outfit, from Sir Stelios Haji-Ioannou himself or a New York firm.
Of course ownership and control rules will have no effect on 'a New York firm', whoever that might be.

I've always thought squuezy was akin to a hug or a cuddle, or 16 billion a share. No disparaging remarks intended.

Oh I see. Yes, easyJet are warm and cuddly. Of course! How silly of me to jump to the conclusion that you are using a an old nickname which I thought died along with the News of the World.

Isn't Wizz Air which was modelled on Easyjet also American owned with our Brexit vote causing EasyJet problems could it be an amalgamation plan of the two ?

Wizzair's ownership appears to be quite diversified. Shareholders Major WIZZ Wizz Air Holdings PLC including Fund and Institutional

No single owner has more than 5%. Difficulty to discern nationality of owners but EU rules require 50% (+1 share) ownership by EU nationals.
