Also Thursday, Chicago-based United named chief revenue officer Jim Compton an executive vice president, as well as vice chairman of its board of directors. Compton, who came from Continental, is adding the airline's operations to his responsibilities, and will oversee Chief Operations Officer Pete McDonald, who is also an executive vice president.

The airline also added to the responsibilities of Jeff Foland, who had previously overseen its technology. He's now executive vice president for marketing, technology, and strategy. Foland worked for United before the merger.
