Thanks for the suggestion. At the very end of the page, I found that AIR stands for Adobe Integrated Runtime platform software.
You didn't notice the link? It only says ...wiki/ Adobe_Integrated_Runtime
Don't believe everything you read on the Internet... Even Wikipedia. AIR is not an abbreviation, it doesn't stand for anything. It just... is.
this is actually is a great question and even a better answer from "Arno"
Thanks,for keeping me informed.

Baloney! Maybe you guys want to change it now but you have previously been calling it "Adobe Integrated Runtime"!
@snorky: true, the code names for AIR used to be Apollo and for a short time it was Adobe Integrated Runtime. But since AIR 1.0 has shipped, it's been just "AIR", which is not an abbreviation. For one thing Adobe AIR would be kind of silly if AIR was an abbreviation for "Adobe Integrated Runtime" ;-)
A) "it doesn't stand for anything. It just... is."
B) "for a short time it was Adobe Integrated Runtime. But since AIR 1.0 has shipped, it's been just 'AIR', which is not an abbreviation."
IMHO, B is a much better answer to a legit question! :)
