British Airways' Director of Flight Operations

What could possibly explain the sudden resignation of Captain Stephen Riley, without any apparent succession planning, from his well renumerated post as British Airways' Director of Flight Operations? A COO stepping in temporarily can hardly be described as normal practice - does that even follow CAA procedures??

Ambitious career people in high posts don't make sacrifices without substantive reason or to take a stand or to make a point, because by then, crossing the rubicon of trading personally held beliefs and morals for a big fat pay cheque has long been resolved.

So, any thoughts as to the TRUE reason behind this fascinating turn of events? What other reason could there be other than a moot desire to return to line flying?
