    I don't know about that context specifically, but there is (or used to be) a Government bond called a '2% Consol' (which was short for 'Consolidated ... <something>'. Maybe that word is on the website in the context of the airline's financial details..?

    Without more context, it may be a misspelling of "console".

    What was the context?

    I very much doubt it is to do with investments, but this is why we do need fuller context from Nefertiti.

    I think, in this case "Commodity" is a synonym of "cargo, freight or goods". And CONSOL is the cargo itself. CONSOLE may mean "corbel, cantilever or bracket".

    ... or, knowing the accuracy of item descriptions, it could be almost anything. I bought a tie the other day, and the label called it a 'Sartorial tie'; but when I took it to the check-out the receipt said 'tortilla tie'

    But I think Finika's right - it's some sort of cargo. (Maybe when there's a single container containing items of various kinds, previously shipped in separate packages, the airline refers to the package as 'consolidated'...?)

    Re: Commodity : CONSOL

    I agree - it's to do with whatever is being shipped. It could be a trade name or an abbreviation or merely a misspelling - since the weight is quoted as 6 kilos per item, it could be a piece of electronic kit.
