Japan Airlines President Routine

Japan Airlines (JAL) is one of the top 10 airlines in the world by passengers. Although Japan Airlines has a lot of clients, the company is having a lot of financial troubles and in 2010 they declared bankruptcy.

Japan Airlines is the largest company in Japan, however its CEO since 2007 Haruka Nishimatsu commutes to work by bus every day and earns less money than any pilot at his company. He earns around 80,000 euros/100,000 dollars per year, he eats in the company restaurant with other employees and works in an open space with the rest of his team. On the other hand, the president of Lehman Brothers Japan used to commute by helicopter to get to his Roppongi Hills office until the company went bankrupt and sunk the world economy along with it.

    Lee Iacocca was CEo of Chrysler in the late 70’s when it was bailed out by the US govt.

    He would not take a slary until the company was back on its feet and the loan paid back to the govt.

    Paid it back years earlier and Chrysley is still going 30 years later
