Rumor: Former vice-chairman at Koycera may join JAL with Inamori


According to, Naoyuki Morita, a former vice-chairman at Kyocera, may join Japan Airlines on February 1 2010. Morita will take a senior management position at JAL. So does this mean Morita will be the new JAL COO? I am not sure if Morita has the knowledge to oversees JAL's daily operation. It's risky enough to find an outsider to be a CEO who will only work half time. Hopefully we will find out more about this after the ETIC press conference today.
