Some of the largest airlines in the country have recently taken steps to help them get back to their core business. AT&T, for example, has outsourced its WarnerMedia content segment to Discovery for $ 43 billion. Rival Verizon, however, took on a regional operator in Kentucky to expand its own presence in telecommunications services.
