For this week's bonus segment of Airways Deep Dive, co-producers Vinay Bhaskara and Rohan Anand head to Abu Dhabi (virtually) to assess the evolving mosaic of Etihad's partially-owned equity partners. If you've been out of the loop, they'll provide you an overview of Etihad's ownership strategy (2:05) including the recent partnership with long-time foe, Lufthansa Group. Rohan challenges Vinay to give his take on the "scattered" partnerships that Etihad has created around the world (7:42) and where the cracks started (hint: both start with "A" and have reincarnated several times). Does Etihad have its hands in too many pots? The two decide whether this is the case in the context of CEO James Hogan's departure in the latter half of 2017 (30:28) and forecast how growth and network development will evolve as the carrier expects over 100+ aircraft to come through the next decade.
