I was under the impression that Mr. Romano was doing a decent job as the airline's CEO. As long as the next one promotes growth and competitiveness, I guess its all right.

(How about AM's CEO)

It was not sudden. Romano was appointed as CEO by CINTRA (former owner of MX) prior to the sale of the company. Gastón Azcárraga -Chairman of Grupo Posadas- obviously wanted from the beginning to have a trusted guy as MX CEO but quite wisely decided to leave Romano for a while so as to ensure a smooth transition. Following the acquisition, Borja Chico was appointed as CFO and everybody knew he would eventually become CEO. So as you can see, this was negotiated a priori.
