) -- Lee Moak has been elected president of the Air Line Pilots Association, sources confirmed.
Moak, who has been chairman of the
chapter of ALPA for five years, defeated three other candidates including incumbent president John Prater.
Moak had already emerged as one of the airline industry's
most important labor leaders after enabling the success of the merger of Delta and Northwest. A series of recent elections has empowered pilot union leaders who
share his view that for pilots to succeed, their airlines must also succeed.
