Etihad is trying to put some real structure behind its group of equity investments. The new Etihad Airways Partners group has been announced. Think of it as an alliance of those airlines in which Etihad has a real interest in seeing succeed. To start, it has Etihad, Aer Berlin, Air Seychelles, Air Serbia, Jet Airways, and Etihad Regional as members. Will this work? Will others join? What do you think?
