Craig was a joy to work with/for at LHR for the time he was here. I'm sure he'll do well at VS.

Given the new Delta dynamic now at Virgin Atlantic why not get an executive that knowns AA from the inside. Good call !!!

In 2010 Craig Kreeger was Senior Vice President International at American Airlines. As such he made a presentation, "Delivering a More Attractive Offer for Our Customers" at the British Airways Investors' Day Meeting on 21 May of that year.

Slides from his 2010 presemtation may be viewed starting at page 108 here:

His presentation suggests that he had a significant and very senior hands-on role in the planning and implementation of the AA/BA/IB ATI. i guess this would make him a real catch for VS and, indirectly, DL because of his knowledge of the implementation of ATI and, indeed, the future AA/IAG plans.

And now confirmed... http://news.sky.com/story/1034953/vi...ntic-confirms-craig-kreeger-as-ceo

AA too has issued a press release thanking Craig for his service. Sounds like a really valued professional for both airlines.

Congratulations to VS for recruiting a sharp executive from a US legacy airline to innovate itself into a formidable 21st century global competitor.
Live life to the fullest.

Forget about AA/VS rumors, check out the slide on page 123 that shows an A340-600 in American Airlines livery!
