Emirates to Bid on British Airways?

Rumors are swirling that Emirates is seeking to purchase British Airways.  Shares in British Airways are up, despite Emirates’ denial that it was interested in the British flag carrier.  Emirates has been on a massive expansion, becoming a major force in the Middle East, and scaring the hell out of European carriers who thought that they would always have a monopoly on Europe-to-Asia flights.  I doubt this deal would actually happen, but I also thought the America West-US Airways deal wouldn’t happen either, so what do I know?
