This week I take a follow-up look at our recent PlaneBusiness Ron Allen Airline Management Award column. We recently awarded American Airlines’ CEO Gerard Arpey the award. We give the award annually to the CEO who has done the most harm to their company during the course of the previous year.
We’ve received over 1200 emails in two weeks, and this week I’ll go over some of the overriding themes from those emails, and I’ll talk more about why it was I felt Gerard was the best candidate for the award.
Subscribers, look for this week’s issue of PlaneBusiness Banter later today. I’ll post here when it is available.
For those of you who are not subscribers, due to a large number of requests for copies, we will be posting that column with open access on the PlaneBusiness.com website in the next week. I’ll let you know when that column has been posted.
