government of Indonesia to succeed Mr. Lumenta as President Director of Garuda Indonesia Airways. In spite of the rapid growth in both passengers the traffic and fleet during the oil boom of the 1970's, thus making it the "largest airline in the Southern Hemisphere", Garuda, as it was known then, had been plagued by a bad reputation as well as heavy losses year after year. Having been a member of Mr. Lumenta's management team of Garuda since November 17, 1984, Mr. Soeparno had the opportunity to involve himself with the management in its efforts to develop and implement new strategies to turn around the airline, which posted a net loss of U.S.$7 million in 1984 (exhibit 9), into profitability.
