IAG: “Demand in London remains strong, with a continuation of the encouraging trends we saw in H2 2011 in our longhaul premium cabins, particularly on North Atlantic routes. The above factors mean that IAG expects its operating result to be around the breakeven level for the full year, after exceptional items, including the non-recurring bmi restructuring cost.” Source: Company statement, 11-May-2012.
