Scott Mayerowitz, covering yesterday’s launch of a new United Airlines premium product, shared this interesting tidbit about United CEO Oscar Munoz’s health having returned to the job after a heart transplant shortly following his being appointed to the role.
Munoz has been flying around the country visiting employees and key clients. Under doctor’s orders, he’s only flown on private planes following the transplant, avoiding all commercial jets, including those of his own airline.
Munoz says he tours enough planes on the ground and sees employees in action and that the flight restriction will be lifted in a few weeks.
The CEO of United has been under doctor’s orders not to even fly commercial. It’s pretty amazing that he is at work running an airline when his doctors won’t even let him fly. We certainly wish him – and United – continued recovery!
