IAG: “The revenue trend in quarter 3 was restrained somewhat due to the London Olympics, but we are so far observing that underlying unit revenue is returning to its positive trend in quarter 4. Including the impact of Hurricane Sandy and continued weakness in Iberia, we now expect to make an operating loss for 2012 in the region of EUR120 million, after bmi trading losses and exceptional items. The expectation does not take into account any impact of the Iberia restructuring plans.” Source: Company statement, 09-Nov-2012.
