So Long British Airways Group

On Friday January 21st a storied name – actually two – will disappear from the stock markets of London and Madrid

In Madrid Iberia will disappear. In London on the UK stock exchange – the Footsie component BAY will disappear.

In its place will appear the somewhat soulless IAG – Mega Inc – aka International Airlines Group.

So farewell BAY and BAG. I always liked BAG – I thought it was appropriate for an airline to be called BAG.

25 years almost after its founding – its now big airline group.
