New reports suggest that Apollo CEO Leon Black may have funneled as much as $75 million to disgraced financier Jeffrey Epstein before supposedly cutting ties in 2018.

The initial report published by the New York Times uncovers a number of alleged payments from Black to Epstein made through several companies.

A company that owned Black’s yacht wired $22.5 million to a company in 2017 that managed Epstein’s private jet – a move that raised questions at Deutsche Bank, the report said.

Other transactions passed through Black-owned businesses, according to the report, including a company that Black used to buy much of his billion-dollar art collection. The total amount of money that Black may have funneled to Epstein is around $75 million, which may have allowed Epstein to continue

LONDON (Reuters) – Luis Gallego, who took over as CEO of IAG

last month, stamped his mark on the airlines group on Monday by promoting Aer Lingus boss Sean Doyle to lead British Airways, replacing Alex Cruz with immediate effect.

It was one of a number of management changes announced by the Anglo-Spanish airlines group and marks a return to BA for Doyle, who worked as director of network, fleet and alliances before leaving for Aer Lingus in 2019.

Cruz had been BA boss since 2016 and will stay on as its non-executive chairman for a transition period, IAG said.

Doyle faces a huge challenge at BA, which like all airlines, is struggling due to low levels of flying during the pandemic.

IAG last month raised 2.74 billion euros ($3.24 billion) to reduce its debt and help it survive the pandemic.

Economic inequality is pervasive inside and outside of companies. Some CEOs, like

Bank of America’s

Brian Moynihan
, have made efforts to bridge that gap. 

Moynihan, who chairs the World Economic Forum International Business Council, has been an outspoken advocate for stakeholder capitalism, publicly encouraging sustainable practices, urging other CEOs to prioritize the welfare of employees during the Covid-19 pandemic, and pledging $1 billion to confront racial and economic inequality.

The Bank of America CEO joined a recent Barron’s conference, The Wealth Gap: A Global Perspective, to discuss the company’s pledge to help local communities and the need for banks to address economic and racial inequality.

Our conversation below has been edited and condensed for clarity. 

Barron’s:Brian, sorry to point out the obvious, but you are a Caucasian man, a one-percenter. What got you interested in this topic?

Moynihan: [Diversity and inclusion] became an early-on interest. It

(RTTNews) – American Airlines Group Inc. (AAL) will be forced to discontinue service to additional U.S. markets unless new coronavirus relief package is received, CEO Doug Parker told CNBC on Thursday.

The airline has already cut service to 13 cities through the month of November.

The airlines received aid under the federal Payroll Support Program or PSP under the CARES Act passed by Congress in March, that banned furloughs. They were hoping for an additional $25 billion in funding.

However, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Thursday said that there won’t be a stand-alone airline aid package without a larger coronavirus stimulus package.

Early this month, with the expiration of US federal payroll program on September 30, American Airlines and United Airlines started to furlough their employees, that is expected to affect around 32,000 workers in total.

However, the companies in their memos to employees reportedly said they will be recalled
