IAG: “January premium traffic for the IAG airlines grew by 7.4% against the previous year, with a 4% gain in non-premium traffic. Excluding weather impact, we believe that premium traffic trends are broadly in line with last month. Excluding weather impact, we do not see any material change to trend: our long-haul business remains strong, but the short-haul European market continues to be highly competitive,” Source: IAG, 03-Feb-2011.
