    Delta will have to reconcile Etihad’s partial ownership of Jet and its battle against the ME3 with the benefits of entering a JV (which, IMO, would make sense for them).

      That’s easy to reconcile. If it is directly profitable Delta doesn’t mind. Hypocrisy be damned.

      After all, Delta doesn’t mind it’s ownership stake in a state-owned Chinese airline.
