Re: Richard Anderson steps down, Atlas Air Chairman appointed as next Amtrak CEO

I know there are many Delta employes and fans who consider Richard Anderson to be a hero, but I think his abrasive personality and "my-way-or-the-highway" attitude alienated as many people and partners (i.e., KE in particular) as it enlisted to his side. He was, in a way, the Robert Crand...

It is time for Delta's board to approach Mr Anderson and propose a Covid recovery Czar consulting role. Mr Bastian may have many strengths; but the cost of lamenting after crossing-your-fingers will be significantly more than an ounce of known cure.
