Southwest spends $15 million to settle lawsuit alleging collusion among airlines - Conquistadores del Cielo: The Secret Club of Top Airline Executives

January 7, 2018View for printing

While all of the airlines are competing for the business of millions of travelers each year, there happens to be one occasion where many of the top airline executives get together each year in the name of camaraderie.

This unique organization, known as Conquistadores del Cielo, held its first meeting in 1937 and was led by none other than TWA President Jack Frye. The group would steadily grow to include leadership from the airlines, aircraft manufacturers, and other aviation related companies, and would look forward to each year meeting at the A-Bar-A Ranch http://www.abararanch.com/ located in Wyoming.
