    Former American Airlines CEO, Robert Crandall, on the airline filing for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection.

    Former American Airlines chief executive Robert Crandall has joined the board of travel-search startup Hipmunk Inc.

    The company's website sorts flights on a visual timeline with graphics that show at a glance whether connections are involved, the plane has Internet access, and other details. It does something similar with hotels, showing a map with nearby alternatives and links to TripAdvisor reviews.

    The San Francisco company was launched in August 2010 by reddit.com co-founder Steve Huffman and Adam Goldstein.

    Crandall retired in 1998 as chairman and CEO of Fort Worth-based American Airlines parent AMR Corp.
