Nice digs. Wolf did all right for himself while running UAL and USAirways into the ground. I wonder who's next on his hit list? Nothing against CEOs if they are running a tight ship. Wolf is a not one of those.

Hell, by airline CEO standards, Wolf is a neophyte. He pales in comparison to Lorenzo. Even Acker & Carty pale by comparison to those Emperor Frank. Acker raided two airlines (Air Florida & Pan Am) and made sure there was nothing left on the carcass for anyone else to save. Carty just screwed AA for a few years or so. Lorenzo toppled Eastern, crippled CO (twice into bankruptcy), Texas Air and one of a handful (if not the only one) who is permanently banned by the US DOT from ever being involved in running or financing an airline - for life.
Wolf is a Lorenzo wannabe (albeit, a pretty damn good one)! Rest assured that some dumb ass investment group with a shitload of money to throw away, will start up another airline and sing the praises of how great Wolf is as a CEO and leader. What a load of crap!

Airline CEOs should be well-compensated. The job is demanding and they more often than not have attractive opportunties outside of the airline industry.
But Stephen Wolf is an exceptionally greedy man. At one point both he and Gangwal made more annually than all other US airline CEOs combined--each. He was CEO and Chairman of the Board when he ran USAirways. Talk about a massive conflict of interest.
He deserves all the criticism he gets and then some.

AA's CEO's house is down the street from my apartment in Dallas. HUGE, but BUTT ugly. However, about the above house. I'd imagine with that 12mil, you are getting all that land AND the house. The house itself is probably only worth 2-3 million, depending on its appointments inside.
