This qualitative study has aimed to develop an understanding of leadership in the airline industry, and particularly to understand the role of organizational context in influencing the emergence of different styles of leadership in the airline industry. Interviews were conducted with 48 senior and operational managers drawn from four American regional passenger airlines. The participating managers described their own perspectives on leadership as well as their own practises. The data showed that while airlines are not held to be receptive contexts for transactional leadership, transactional leadership is more prevalent within the airline industry than the extant literature suggests.
