Abstract

My research topic is on U.S Air Ways organizational changes, leadership development, and change management. Who needs to be included in planning, implementing, and sustaining the change? Why? What obstacles/resistance will inhibit the change and what will drive the change? What additional activities will be required to deal with the resistance? By changing these issues with my team I would improve the customer services, company moral and gained profit.

Our team consists of Tigest Alemu, Amanda Chinaglia, Antony Harding, Laurie Kiernan and Enrique Somoza. The professor randomly picked the team members so no one knew each other prior to the class. At first I did not know what team I was suppose to be in. The team had already met the first week and introduced themselves and assigned the questions to each other. We all had time to meet in class and everyone agreed on picking US Airways and everyone agreed on doing research and answering the questions for our next group meeting.
The team discussed the recent changes, of US Airways and Laurie said she was going to ask her brother about US Airways because he works for them. In between team meetings, all communication was done via e-mail and phone conversations. By the third week, all the team members had come to the unanimous pick of the questions they wanted to answer. Enrique volunteered to do the power point and everyone was to work on his or her part of the presentation and e-mail to Enrique. The presentation was divided among the team members. Each member reviewed the parts they were presenting. All questions and concerns about the presentation were addressed and a mock rehearsal of the presentation was done to ensure everyone’s comfort with presenting.

US Airways is ranked amongst the major airline based in US. The airline is ranked as sixth largest airline in the country in terms of…...

...will position AA to thrive as the economy recovers. April 7, 2010 Page 3 American Airlines Company Overview and History American Airlines, American Eagle, and AmericanConnection currently provide scheduled service to 250 cities in 40 countries, with an average of over 3,400 daily flights. Together, these carriers operate a fleet of over 700 aircraft, and are subsidiaries of the AMR Corporation. Though AMR was founded in 1982, the American Airlines brand has been a major player in air travel for over three quarters of a century. In 1929, the Aviation Corporation acquired scores of independent airlines as the airline industry experienced sweeping consolidation. The following year, the Aviation Corporation changed its name to American Airways, to reflect the brand under which many of the regional carriers flew. The company was headquartered in New York, and ran routes from New York, Boston, and Los Angeles to Dallas.1 The company was renamed American Airlines in 1934, and Cyrus Rowlett Smith became the president. Smith went on to run the company as CEO until 1968, when he resigned to serve as United States Secretary of Commerce.2 Within its first decade of operation, American Airlines flew its one-millionth passenger, became the number one domestic carrier in the United States (by revenue), and began trading on the New York Stock Exchange. The airline had also collaborated with New York City Mayor Fiorello LaGuardia to develop LaGuardia Airport. As a first-mover among......

...report on British airways 1a. Internal and external factors which influenced the strategic changes of BA. The airline industry is highly competitive and regulations are heavily implemented. Aside from these, the airline industry also faces different challenges brought about by drastic changes in consumer behavior affected by different external factors such as economic condition.( Prosser, T. (n.d).) Political The airline industry is subjected and governed by stringent air regulatory controls. Regulations are applied in the courses that the airline chooses to travel, the partners that the airline chooses to works with, the airport schedule it uses, the fare it sets as well as the infrastructure costs. One more area which is heavily regarded is safety and security. British airways identified and introduced an array of security measures and protocol to curb the threat of terrorism and illegal immigration. The European Union, being a regulatory body in Europe published a list of airlines that failed to meet the safety standards set by ICAO. These airlines are banned in Europe (Department of Transport 2009). Economic The airline industry is highly sensitive to any economic recession. Economic downturn causes company to cut down business travel which contributes greatly to the sales of the airlines industry. The global recession that took place in 2008, has massive impacts on the airline industry. A couple of factors affected the business of British Airways such as......

Us Airways Labor Issues

...US Airways flight attendants reject tentative deal US Airways is a unionized company in which the flight attendants are covered by separate units of the Association of Flight Attendants-CWA. Earlier this month, flight attendants at US Airways voted down a tentative agreement that would have been their first joint contract since the merger with America West in 2005. The US Airways chapter of the Association of Flight Attendants said that 75% of flight attendants voted to reject. This all began in 2002, when US Airways filed for bankruptcy. America West bought the old US Airways out of bankruptcy protection in 2005 to form the current US Airways Group Inc. But flight attendants and pilots have both continued to operate under separate contracts. Whenever two separate companies merge, both unions and companies have to get together and negotiate new contracts and rules for the new founded company. This makes it easier, so that the entire company can be on the same page. Being on the same page is crucial because it establishes the rights, privileges, seniority, and obligations for each party, in this case US Airways and America West. The general objective in negotiating agreements is to develop a working relationship between the two airlines, which ultimately will help each party achieve common goals and objectives. The “new” US Airways is still currently split into two companies. There is US Airways “East” and US Airways “West”. The US Airways East still follows the contract...
