American Airlines names new Latin America boss


FORT WORTH, Texas – Juan Carlos Liscano has been named the new managing director of American Airlines for the airline’s Latin America operations.

Liscano’s new occupation will require him to oversee operations for “American’s largest international region covering 50 destinations in Mexico and Central and South America,” according to the Dallas-Fort Worth-based company.

Juan Carlos Liscano, previously the head of the Los Angeles operation, has been with the company since 1994.

In 2014, American Airlines appointed Juan Carlos Liscano as the head of the Los Angeles operation. Liscano has been with the company since 1994.

The announcement comes after American was blamed for a series of racially-charged incidents against African Americans. As a result from the claims, the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP), issued a warning to the company. American Airlines officials have planned to meet with the NAACP to discuss the group’s concerns.
