Etihad Airways looks to rival BA, eye seat on Aer Lingus board

Etihad Airways is eyeing a seat on the board of Aer Lingus, as the Abu Dhabi-based carrier builds ambitions for its own global network to rival the likes of British Airways' Oneworld alliance, The Telegraph has reported. Last May, Etihad bought a near 3% stake in Aer Lingus and James Hogan, president and chief executive of the Abu Dhabi airline, said he wants a seat on the board to cement ties between the two companies. The airline will announce on Tuesday a code-share agreement with Aer Lingus that will allow Etihad customers to be booked onto the Irish carrier's routes to the US and Europe.
