International Airlines Group, the parent company of Aer Lingus, British Airways, Iberia and Vueling, is holding its annual Capital Markets Day today, Friday 3 November 2017.
Whilst the event is very much aimed at insitutional investors and City analysts with industrial quantities of Powerpoint slides in all colours of the spectrum and talk of Return On Invested Capital and Earnings Per Share, there should be plenty of news for passengers.
At last year’s event there were a number of BA announcements including a £400m investment in Club World and reconfiguration of selected Boeing 777s.
The slide deck should be available from around 08:00 GMT on the IAG website. Note that the PDF slide deck may not load if you are using Safari as your browser.
Whilst the themes should be very much as last year, namely targeted investment, operational efficiency and increased use of digital technology and automation, we should at least expect some new announcements.
For BA, we hope to hear at least some detail on its plans for a Club World cabin, premium ground services at London Heathrow and digital technology.
We will update throughout the day on any noteworthy announcements, both on this site and on Twitter.
Update: Here are details of BA related announcements from the day.
