    Actually, this idea and approach is not an inter-alliance issue, as all of Lufthansa, TAP and Spanair are Star Alliance members. And they would be buying the shares from another Star carrier: SAS. So it’s more like “let’s help our nordic member by buying their share in the spanish member”, so it’s a win-win situation for Star and would only redistribute the weight of the member within the alliance (LH would grow even more influential, while SAS would lose a lot of it’s weight and TAP would gain some power at the same time).
