Bingo!!! Think laterally. Branson buys AMR, now think Wall Street & Jet Star Airlines. Sell off the parts which are worth more than the whole.

Now, think deeper. Get rid of AMR and now there no tie to British Airways, Branson's competition. And now he also has gate slots for Virgin Amneria to grow at a extremely cheap cost with young blood, young fleet, very low costs and NO suffocating union or pensions.

Win, win, win for him.
