JetBlue (JBLU) has put out feelers with Aer Lingus' management about possibly purchasing a stake in the Irish airliner, according to a report in the Irish Times. The Irish government is considering selling its 25% stake, which is valued at around €115M ($150M), and the tie-up could make sense as the two airlines operate similar business models but don’t compete head-to-head on any routes.
