Shuffle Comes Ahead Of Likely Merger Announcement, Sources
On Thursday, United Airlines -- said
to be in advanced talks about a merger with US Airways -- underwent
a top-level game of musical chairs, shuffling executives to
positions they may hold in a merged airline.
Reuters reports former UAL chief revenue officer John Tague is
now United's new chief operation officer, replacing Pete
McDonald... who is now chief administrative officer.
Tague joined United five years ago, after serving as president
and CEO of ATA Holdings, parent of now-defunct ATA Airlines. At
least one analyst called Tague's new position a good fit for
United... and puts the airline's best face forward.
"He's an incredibly talented, exceptionally bright guy," said
KKC Aviation Consulting's Stuart Klaskin. "One could say that by
putting him out there in this position ... they're putting their
best talent out there in the front."
Neither United nor US Airways have officially confirmed merger
discussions, though nearly everyone with an eye towards the airline
biz believes the carriers will announce a merger proposal very
