Vasu Raja, American Airlines’ chief commercial officer, will depart the company in June, the airline said Tuesday.

Word of Raja’s exit comes a week after the airline denied that he was planning to leave the company, amid rumors that he was not present in the airline’s office and had been ousted by a board that was unhappy with American’s revenue strategy.

In a statement to the Airline Observer newsletter last week, an American Airlines spokesperson said that Raja was working remotely “for a few weeks while he takes care of some personal matters,” but was “not leaving.”
