Rumored new JAL COO: Masaru Onishi


It has been floating around for a while that the new Japan Airlines COO will be a internal promotion and is a young executive. Now they finally know the name of the rumored COO.

47 News (in Japanese) reports that Masaru Onishi will be the next COO of JAL. Onishi, 54, is currently the president of Japan Air Commuter. I guess that's young compared to the new CEO Inamori Kazuo who will soon be 78. Given how Kazuo will work for only a few days a week, Onishi might become the new active JAL leader. And who knows, when ETIC exits 3 years later, Kazuo will probably leave/retire too. Onishi might even get promoted again.
