British Airways (BA) chief executive Alex Cruz has down (was removed) from the job, immediately.  He has led BA since 2016, through what IAG says is “a particularly demanding period” as Covid prompted major restructuring. IAG boss Luis Gallego said the shake-up came as the company navigated “the worst crisis faced in our industry” – which has seen demand crushed and thousands of jobs axed. The new BA CEO will be Sean Doyle, who is now at Aer Lingus – also part of IAG.  Mr Doyle previously worked at BA for 20 years before moving to head Aer Lingus two years ago. This is one of a series of management changes announced by Mr Gallego, who took over as IAG chief executive a month ago after the retirement of Willie Walsh. Mr Cruz will remain non-executive chairman of BA for a “transition period” before also handing over that role to Mr Doyle. BA has been sharply criticised by the way it has treated staff, for whom there is no longer much work. A total of up to 13,000 BA staff were expected to lose their jobs, and over 8,000 have already gone. Last week, MAG – owner of Manchester, Stansted and East Midlands airports – announced plans to cut nearly 900 jobs as the Treasury’s furlough scheme comes to an end. .Tweet     Coronavirus: British Airways boss Alex Cruz steps down as industry faces ‘worst crisis’ By John-Paul Ford Rojas, business reporter   @JPFordRojas (Sky News) Monday 12 October 2020 Alex Cruz has led BA since 2016,  IAG said Mr Cruz had led the airline “through a particularly demanding period” as the pandemic prompted major restructuring.
