Richard Branson - "befriending your enemies"

In an interview with the Wall Street Journal the buccaneering British billionaire explained -

I've always believed in befriending your enemies. Years ago British Airways went to extraordinary lengths to put us out of business. After the court case, I rang up Sir Colin Marshall, who ran BA, and said, 'would you like to come out for lunch?' I think he wondered why on earth I was doing it. But we had a delightful lunch at my house in London and became friends and buried the hatchet.
