The man who keeps American in the air

In the US Gerard Arpey is hailed as the saviour of the world's largest carrier, American Airlines, which narrowly escaped bankruptcy after 9/11. In Britain, Arpey is the man that British Airways must do business with if it wants to forge an alliance that can compete effectively in the cut-throat world of the international airline industry.

Yeah - saw this on FT. Hmmm... MRTC on a west coast-based LCC? Oh my, I bet a certain ramp-crew-accident-prone carrier based in my home town is having a collective gastrointestinal event at the prospect.
