Six transformed Continental Airlines from a one-route “puddle-jumper” into one of the world’s major airlines. He is credited with dramatically expanding air travel by being one of the first executives to introduce low and discounted airfares. Through his efforts, airlines became an accessible and affordable form of travel for the mass public.
