American Airlines CEO Won’t Attend Thursday Meeting With Trump

  • Session conflicts with conference among company managers
  • Executives from other carriers set for talks at White House


American Airlines Group Inc. chief executive officer won’t attend a Feb. 9 meeting at the White House with President Donald Trump and leaders from other carriers because it conflicts with a company event.

Doug Parker will remain in Texas where he will address the final day-long session of American’s annual leadership conference, the airline said Wednesday. At the meeting, Parker and other top executives will lay out this year’s priorities for the world’s largest carrier. Thursday’s session is the last of four that involve more than 6,000 company managers from around the world.
