*Before exceptional items

IAG: “The Group expects an operating profit for 2013, before exceptional items, of around EUR740 million. Current trading is in line with underlying recent trends. Our capacity plans remain unchanged. For the full year, we expect to grow Group capacity by 5.2 per cent (reduction of 2.4 per cent excluding Vueling). In addition, we should see a reduction in non-fuel unit costs in 2013. Moving into 2014, we expect the driver of revenue growth to shift from yield to volume due to new British Airways route launches and the strong growth of Vueling.” Source: Company statement, 08-Nov-2013.
