Food for years has taken a back seat to fare pricing as the principal factor customers consider when booking domestic airline flights. But a new 2019 J.D. Power International Airline Destination Survey reveals that when passengers book flights internationally, food and the overall inflight experience are far more important than price in deciding which carrier to book.
United Airlines recently unveiled interior images of its new 50-seat Bombardier CRJ 550.

American's has been focused on improving on-time performance, and November demonstrated the results of its efforts.
It remains to be seen how United Airlines (UAL) performs under Scott Kirby as the new CEO, given his vast experience in the airline space.
With United Airlines Holdings Inc unveiling on Thursday plans for industry veteran Scott Kirby to take the helm as chief executive officer next year, investors are turning to succession plans at another carrier: American Airlines Group Inc . Ironically, Kirby landed at United from American in 2016 after the board passed over him as a potential leader in what was described as succession planning for the longer-term.
Scott Kirby was named United Airlines' next CEO on Thursday, and interested parties quickly began to offer reaction to the news.
United Airlines (NASDAQ: UAL) said Dec. 5 it is promoting President Scott Kirby to succeed Chief Executive Oscar Munoz, effective May 20. Munoz, 60, a former railroad executive who took United's reins in September 2015 and recruited Kirby, 52, from American Airlines, will transition to the role of executive chairman of the board for a one-year term. "With United in a stronger position than ever, now is the right time to begin the process of passing the baton to a new leader," Munoz said in a statement.
Over two decades at four airlines, more than a few junior or midlevel employees have feared briefing Scott Kirby. The problem has never been that he was uninformed or would need extra explanation. The issue is Kirby often seemed to know more about whatever issue they were presenting than they did. If they had holes […]
Here's what the transition in power at the top will mean for the Chicago-based carrier that's been in turnaround mode for the past four years.
CEO turnover is up recently. Is it a trend, and if so, what could it mean for investors? Could it signal the end of the bull market?
United Airlines Inc.'s CEO-designate, Scott Kirby, is one of the most recognizable airline executives in the U.S. after stints at America West, US Airways and American Airlines, but he is also a "somewhat polarizing figure," Vertical Research Partners said Thursday. United announced earlier than CEO Oscar Munoz would move to the role of executive chairman in May, and that Kirby would replace him. "Bulls will argue that he is exceptionally-qualified, perhaps the best in the business, and that this transition should be orderly and mostly unnoticeable to us as he has led or at least played an integral role in all of the major decisions that have taken place at UAL over the last three years," Vertical analyst Darryl Genovesi wrote in a note. "Bears, meanwhile, will argue that Mr. Kirby "needs a boss" as his aggressive competitive posture could lead to excess capacity and strategic pricing practices that some investors view as irrational." Genovesi's view is that Kirby's decisions accept the need for short-term pain to achieve a long-term gain in a highly competitive industry. His critics "appear to consist primarily of those who fancy (or once fancied) the industry as ~oligopolistic post the 2008-13 consolidation wave, a thesis that, to us, now seems to have completely broken down." In the last five years, Kirby's push to match or undercut low-cost carriers has driven big revenue swings and capacity growth and United's stock took a dive before a sharp recovery. The stock has actually doubled since his arrival at the airline in 2016, outperforming the broader industry by 75% as measured by the NYSE Arca Airline ETF . United shares were down 0.1%, but have gained 28% in 2019, while the ETF has gained 19% and the S&P 500 has gained 24%.
United Airlines' new CEO appointment "reflects a commitment from Munoz and the board to preserve leadership continuity and demonstrates confidence in the airline's strategy and current trajectory," the company said.
The change takes effect in May, with Munoz becoming executive chairman of the board of directors of United Airlines Holdings Inc.
United Airlines is reshuffling its executive team with Scott Kirby being promoted to CEO in a long-expected move, and Oscar Munoz shifting to executive chairman of the airline group's board. The change will take place in May 2020 when United's current chairman, Jane Garvey, will retire from the board. Munoz will serve as executive chairman […]
United Airlines Holdings Inc insider Scott Kirby will succeed Oscar Munoz as chief executive officer next year as part of a transition the airline hopes will secure a growth path after some tumultuous years. Kirby was recruited as the airline's president from rival American Airlines Group Inc in 2016 and has been groomed for the top job. The leadership change follows share price and earnings improvements for United thanks to an aggressive growth strategy implemented by Kirby last year, following a public outcry over a viral video showing a 69-year-old passenger being dragged off https://www.reuters.com/article/us-ual-passenger/united-airlines-reaches-settlement-with-passenger-dragged-from-plane-idUSKBN17T2WM a sold-out United flight in April 2017.
