As we roll into Thanksgiving, how about an interview with the CEO of a brand new airline that has just come out of stealth mode? Say hello to Current Aviation.
I spoke with CEO Brad Beakley, former Vice President, Operations Control and Planning for US Airways until 2010 when he left for Sabre. Since then he’s spent time at Carlson Rezidor Hotel Group and TSA Solutions. And now, he’s ready to do his own thing.
Current won’t fly any airplanes, but instead let the regional partners do all the flying. It’s like if American Eagle existed and American Airlines didn’t fly any airplanes.
Confused? Don’t worry. I get into as much as I can with Brad on this half hour Cranky Flier Interview, presented by Ontario International Airport. It’s still early, so more details will come later.
Oh, and Happy Thanksgiving to all. I won’t be posted anything else this week, so look for the newest post to come on Monday after we all recover from our holiday stupor.
