Coca Cola HBC AG (market cap $9bn) is listed on SIX, not Coca Cola Co.($190bn) - it is a Swiss company.

The Head Office of IAG is in London, there are a huge amount of British employees, so suggesting that this is a 100% EU company problem after Brexit is pie-in-the-sky thinking. The Market cap is split ~50:50 between Madrid and London exchanges.
Take a look at Coca Cola's listing on the LSE here it states "Company address; Turmstrasse 30, Zug, 6300, Switzerland"

If you look at the LSE listing for IAG you will see its full name is INTERNATIONAL CONSOLIDATED AIRLINES GROUP S.A.

S.A is Société Anonyme and is used in Spanish company names like Ltd. is used in English company names because in this case it is registered in Madrid (more details here)

As an EU compnay post Brexit they will have no problems with EU - EU flights or with EU - US flights, international flights from UK will be a different kettle of fish.
