Rod Eddington of BA was with Ansett, not Air New Zealand.
Gary Toomey (ok, out of date now, but anyway) was CFO at Qantas before joining Air New Zealand

Especially during the early days of deregulation, airline execs were a rather elite group. In other words, it was a tough circle to get into and once an exec left one airline, he would seemingly end up at another. It remind me of pro football. If a coach gets fired form one team, he will often end up at another.

Stephen Wolf made a reputation out of reviving an airline, pulling up its stock, cashing in and bailing out. But look at people like Don Burr and Ed Acker. They played musical chairs with a variety of carriers.
