    AA announced a series of management changes today -- it looks like AAdvantage president Maya Leibman will be taking on a new role as AMR's chief information officer.

    It certainly sounds like Leibman has the background for the CIO role -- before heading AAdvantage she was apparently AMR's vice president for information technology -- but it does seem like a loss for the frequent-flyer program, at least in the short term.

    Congratulations and way to go Maya. Shuffling all the executives around at American Airlines might be like playing Three Card Monte, but I understand Monte is retiring at the end of this month. I didn't know you were previously VP of DP. I knew something good would come out of this bankruptcy at the new American Airlines. As the Chief Information Officer maybe you, and your team can develop a solution to restoring third party access to mileage aggregators such as GoMiles.com, UsingMiles.com and AwardWallet.com before the end of the week. But first, find a bigger desk for your new office.

    That is a big loss - met her at the MegaDO announcement party - she really seems like she cares about the Aadvantage Program members. I hope she is involve din the selection of the replacement and they have her same spirit.

    Congrats to Maya! She's one of the brightest out there for sure. The big question now is who takes over the part of AA that's most important to us...

    Maybe Graham Atkinson wants to earn a lot less money and move over from Walgreens back in to the aviation industry?? ;)

    I do hope they find someone suitable for the job who gets it and don't just shuffle around internally

    Looks like her original university focus was to become a foreign-service officer or diplomat? Hmmm. Maybe our off-shore friends on here - Gaucho, zpaul, etc. - will be getting VIP treatment. Do you suppose she'll send Eloy another pair of PJ's?

    p.s. - She graduated from college in 1992. A mere child :)

    Glad to see they promoted from within instead of hiring someone from outside who would want to transform the program.
