At American Airlines, a Departing CEO's Moral Stand

D. Micahel Lindsay, president of Gordon College, offers a spiritual perspective to American Airlines' recent bankruptcy filing. He writes, "Mr. Arpey may be the only airline C.E.O. who regarded bankruptcy not simply as a financial tool, but more important, as a moral failing. In a day and age of outrageous executive compensation and protest movements justifiably angered at the self-serving nature of the 1 percent, it is refreshing to see a C.E.O. leave a position with honor even as he loses a long-fought battle."
