    This mornings reports suggest the DL side will probably go through, but maybe not the AF/KL side.

    Seems like I would make more sense for KLM and Airfance than for Delta IMHO.

    I saw that as well. Coincidentally, that was also when my blood pressure lessened somewhat. :D As long as Branson keeps control, I'm cool with VS tying up with DL or joining SkyTeam. I'd prefer Star Alliance, but my main concern is Branson keeping control.

    Branson had a post on the Virgin Atlantic blog this afternoon basically telling BA to piss off. DL may very well buy the SQ stake but Branson doesn't seem to be going anywhere.

    Branson has said he's keeping majority control.
