    “British Airways will trade on the stock market for the last time today (20 January 2011) before its merger with Spanish carrier Iberia.

    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.”

    Who thought up the name International Consolidated Airlines Group (IAG)? Rather bland ………

    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.
