Chief executive of Malaysia Airlines: The toughest job in travel?
1. Change the name of the airline
This could happen as this had been mentioned / speculated before.
New Malaysia Airlines CEO a "battle hardened" veteran
HONG KONG (AP) — When the owners of embattled Malaysia Airlines went looking for a new CEO to lead its restructuring, they chose a German turnaround specialist known as "The Terminator" to take on what's been dubbed the toughest job in aviation.
Christoph Mueller, 52, comes to the post fresh from a stint reviving Ireland's Aer Lingus. He'll be the first foreigner to head the Malaysian state-owned company. Analysts say he's an industry veteran "battle-hardened" from his work carrying out corporate restructurings at other state-owned airlines, including failed Belgian carrier Sabena.
Mueller will be facing his biggest challenge yet at Malaysia Airlines. The company was pushed to the brink of bankruptcy by the disappearance of Flight 370 on March 8 with 239 people on board and the shooting down mere months later of Flight 17 over Ukraine, killing all 298 passengers and crew.
God Speed and good luck Herr Mueller!
Likewise, regarding Aer Lingus, it could be taken over by IAG, we will see how this goes, and yes, regarding Malaysia Airlines, good speed and good luck, it's a good airline, we love to fly with them and it's very sad what happened to them over the past year, may they recover and Mr. Mueller hopefully can turnaround their fortunes for a secured longterm future of this wonderful airline. Cheers.
