I realise this is a separate Virgin named entity, but Iím basing my view on the lack of interest in VA investment given how strategic it would have been to SQ. I canít imagine that VA wouldnít have made similar approaches before going into administration and they are in a strategic alliance with SQ and wholly supply SQís codeshare network in one of their most important markets and SQ is already one of VAís biggest shareholders. If none of those advantages appealed in helping refinance another foreign airline, then I just see little appetite for taking on more risk than theyíve already got in their own hands.
