DALLAS (AP) - The new American Airlines will have more top executives from US Airways than from the current American.
The companies named eight senior executives on Monday, including five from US Airways and three from American parent AMR Corp. AMR and US Airways Group Inc. hope to complete their proposed merger this summer.
The new team joins US Airways CEO Doug Parker, who will hold the same title after the merger. AMR CEO Tom Horton will serve briefly as chairman before exiting next year.
Parker is keeping the core of his inner circle intact. The new leadership team includes US Airways President Scott Kirby and others who have worked alongside Parker for several years.
