    April 27, 2003 A Taut, Last-Minute Stretch to Save an Airline By EDWARD WONG and MICHELINE MAYNARD [A] dozen or so men walked out of the Hyatt Regency by the Dallas airport last Wednesday night holding in their hands the fate of the world's largest airline. They were tired and anxious and hoarse, having spent 12 straight hours bargaining at a conference table in the hotel's basement. Over their heads, the silver jets of American Airlines veered toward the runways, doing the work of the very company they were trying to save. One man, Donald J. Carty, walked from the...

    <p>Amid all the turmoil over the failure of AMR Corp.'s American Airlines to disclose executive benefits, even as it asked its employees to take huge pay cuts, one little mistake stands out.</p> <p>One short statement is creating enormous fallout for both Donald J. Carty, AMR's chief executive, and the leaders of American's three unions. The result could be that American, which has struggled so hard to cut its costs, could end up filing for bankruptcy protection anyway, changing the direction of the airline industry.</p>

    CEOs You Don't Want in the Cockpit By Harold Meyerson Tuesday, April 22, 2003; Page A19 It's a good thing that Donald J. Carty, the chairman and chief executive of American Airlines, doesn't also pilot one of its planes. If he did, and if the plane went into an uncontrolled dive and he handled it the same way he's running the company, he'd bail out as the plane fell to earth, drift dreamily down on a golden parachute, land lightly amid the carnage and give himself a nice cash bonus for coming through unscathed. Over the past week it has...
