Question for Air France/KLM crew

Hello guys and gals.

Looking to hear if anyone's heard any rumours in the last month of a purchase involving a Canadian airline?

If so, shoot me a message, really appreciate it.

Have not heard a thing. As far as I know there are limits to foreign ownership of airlines in Canada. One foreign entity can not own more than 25%. And if say Delta wanted to get involved it could only add up to 49%. I would assume your rumour would involve Westjet. At most I would think it might involve a strategic investment to tie them more tightly into the grouping. But also have not heard anything about that. Is Westjet having financial difficulties?
