United CEO Vows to Beat Margin-Leader Delta on Quality not Quantity – Skift
The Skift Live conference was this week, and I have to say I thoroughly enjoyed watching United CEO Scott Kirby’s interview. I don’t see public link to watch it, but here’s an article that Skift put out talking about the conversation. Scott keeps pushing United ahead and has no qualms disagreeing with American’s strategy, but then he’d say, “and that’s ok.” I keep flashing back to Seinfeld and “not that there’s anything wrong with that.” Ultimately, he isn’t shy and he’s a great interview every time.
