Via the Dallas Morning News:
With a merger announcement with US Airways Inc. likely to come next week, the roles of top management at American Airlines Inc. may be becoming clearer.
Two people close to the situation told the Dallas Morning News on Wednesday that Tom Horton, chairman and chief executive of American and parent AMR Corp., apparently will be the non-executive chairman of American after a merger.
They said US Airways chairman and CEO Doug Parker would be American’s CEO, a position that would hold the power at the airline post-merger.
Oh my, I can’t believe this is actually going to happen. If it goes through I’ll feel about as violated as Antoine Dodson:
So hide yo’ kids, hide yo’ wife, because we’re all about to get Doug Parkered!
I’m sticking to my predictions, and you can bet I’ll be loving the hell out of my eight systemwide upgrades without any fare restrictions this year…
