Berkshire Hathaway Searching for Airline Deals

American multinational holding company Berkshire Hathaway could be considering purchasing an airline, reports ETF Trends. It claims to be looking for deals, although it has not found one at “a sensible purchase price” yet.

In 2016, Berkshire took positions in the largest U.S. airliners: American Airlines (AAL), Delta Air Lines (DAL), United Continental Holdings (UAL) and Southwest Airlines (LUV). These same companies were held in the U.S. Global Jets ETF (JETS) as of December 31, 2017.
