E-Commerce Times: "Amazon Fans Fire's Flames"

E-Commerce Times: "Amazon Fans Fire's Flames"

. . . Amazon is striking while the iron is hot, noted Larry Chiagouris, professor of marketing at Pace University's Lubin School of Business.

Shoppers have a high level of trust in Amazon, he said, referencing a yet-to-be-released study on millennial consumers and their habits, conducted by the Marketing Executives Networking Group.

More than half of respondents in both the millennials group and the 35-and-older group indicated they trusted Amazon more than any other major tech company, according to Chiagouris. About 17 percent of the millennials pointed to Google, about 12 percent to Apple, roughly 8 percent to Facebook, and about 5 percent indicated that Microsoft was the most trustworthy of the bunch.

"Amazon cannot be expected to remain so far ahead on the important trust factor forever, and they are doing what they can to exploit the trust advantage, which includes launching new products and services that will be more readily accepted today than ... a year or two from now," Chiagouris told the E-Commerce Times.

American Banker: "United Airlines Turns to Banker Versed in Crisis"

American Banker: "United Airlines Turns to Banker Versed in Crisis"

. . . The U.S. attorney for New Jersey is reportedly investigating whether the airline added a money-losing flight to Columbia, S.C., at the behest of former Port Authority Chairman David Samson in exchange for renovations United wanted at Newark Liberty International Airport.

The allegations are extremely serious, and the board — possibly under investor pressure — appears to be trying to reassert its control, said Pace University professor John Alan James, who specializes in corporate governance issues and has consulted with United.

Tapping a banker as chairman could increase investor confidence because banks "are the lifeline of airlines" and financial expertise is crucial for the transportation industry, he said.

The board "is trying to show the shareholders that they're in charge, and that they have two heavyweights, a banker and a guy who understands transport law," leading the reforms, James said in reference to Meyer and Oscar Munoz, a former president of the railroad company CSX who was named United's CEO.

His comments have been edited and condensed.
