Westjet Air, Transat, and Thomas Cooke are companies to watch.
I pity any employee of Westjet right now with the pure horror of uncertainty a Private Equity firm take over brings
More pity for the Thomas Cook employees, who don't know whether any takeover will actually include further employment.
Since VS want the Long Haul and LH want Condor, the UK Short Haul cabin and flight crews are left in the middle picking up the pieces.
EDIT: On the subject of a VS take-over of Long-Haul, surely Unite will put up a hell of a fight in regards to employment of staff and contracts. I don't think a union like Unite will let it quietly slip under the radar
Except that LH is only really interested in the long haul branch of Condor. They acknowledge that the short haul fleet will likely cause a problem with competition regulations. So Condor's short haul employees should be just as worried. And still no mention of bidders for Thomas Cook Scandinavia.
