United Continental Holdings CEO Munoz will Return to Full Time Work Next Week

On Sunday, the United Continental Holdings said that Oscar Munoz, its CEO will be returning full-time work in the coming week, starting from March 14. In October, after suffering a heart attack, he had gone on leave and also underwent a heart transplant on January 6, 2016.

Although, Munoz, 57, was not working full time this while but was participating in all major corporate decisions while he recovered. He met with employees and shareholders during this time according to the airline. His quick recover surprised many of the people related to the industry. Just two week after his operation, Munoz joined a conference call with Wall Street analysts.

On Sunday, Unitedairtime. com., the company's website posted a new video in which Munoz told employees "I'm energized by the momentum we have and I'm ready to join you."

Munoz, who will be joining his duties shortly, made a surprise appearance in January, during the company's fourth-quarter earnings conference call.

Munoz took over as CEO of United, when the company was facing a federal probe, which was followed by stepping down of CEO Jeff Smisek and two other executives on September 8. Munoz vowed to improve the labor relation and improve customer satisfaction at United after taking over the helm.
