American Airlines has appointed Kenji Hashimoto to the position of Vice President-Strategic Alliances and Don Casey to the position of Vice President-Revenue Management.

"The Vice President-Strategic Alliances manages our global alliances, international planning activities, interline product distribution, regulatory affairs, and leads and oversees American's Joint Business Agreement activities, which will be a significant part of our competitiveness, revenue generation and profitability," said Virasb Vahidi, American's Senior Vice President-Planning. "Kenji has an extremely broad, long-term background in managing several key departments at American. We are confident that he will excel in this new opportunity."

Hashimoto joined American in 1998 and has held a series of managerial positions of increasing responsibility within the Finance and Planning organization. Most recently, he served as Managing Director-Airline Profitability and Financial Analysis, where his responsibilities included the financial aspects of the JBA. Among his previous assignments, Hashimoto served as American's Managing Director-Investor Relations and Managing Director-Finance for American's Europe / Pacific Division.

The appointment of Don Casey is to replace long-time Vice President-Revenue Management Scott Nason, who recently retired after 29 years with the company. Casey will be responsible for American's fare pricing and yield management activities.

"Don's broad, deep, and extensive management background and experience at American, and Canadian Airlines previously, clearly makes him the right choice to assume this key leadership role," said Vahidi. "We appreciate Don's efforts over the past few years to further strengthen American's global alliances and partnerships, as well as his work with British Airways and Iberia on the formation of the JBA."

Casey earned a Master's Degree in Business Administration from the University of British Columbia, as well as a Bachelor's Degree in Mathematics from the University of Alberta.
