Abstract:

"In the twelve years following 9/11, American Airlines lost billions of dollars and endured years of crisis and turmoil. Financial upheaval, the crash of Flight 587, grueling confrontations with labor, a rival's push to acquire the company, and a challenging fight with the government tested the mettle and fortitude of its top executives. Against all odds, American found a way to save what was once the world's largest airline from certain ruin. Told through the eyes of American's chief lawyer, this insider's story of intrigue of the unfolding events is set against a personal look at the innermost workings of the sexiest industry in the world."--
