The merger will be completed on Friday and shares in the new holding company, International Consolidated Airlines Group (IAG), will be listed in London and Madrid on Monday morning. The completion of the merger comes nearly 24 years after BA joined the London market in a high-profile flotation that was 11-times oversubscribed.” http://www.guardian.co.uk/business/2011/jan/20/british-airways-trades-last-time-merger 20th January 2011 at 14:23 #552763 TravellatorParticipant Same day as the ballot announcement ! 20th January 2011 at 17:09 #552764 MartynSinclairModerator Who thought up the name International Consolidated Airlines Group (IAG)? Rather bland ……… 20th January 2011 at 19:15 #552765 VintageKrugParticipant It’s meant to be bland; just a holding company, and allows the brands Iberia and British Airways (and whatever other airlines they acquire) to shine through. American Airlines is owned by the similarly bland AMR Corporation.
