I remember some time ago there was a CEO (I forget the company) that took to reddit to ask for honest opinions on certain operations. I know that authors do it for Q & A (Robert Greene, Tim Ferris, etc)
Imagine Ed Bastian dropped in asking people about their thoughts on whats next for DTW

After seeing so many 'What's next for (Insert airport, airline, airframe, specific program)' in which we are essentially opening it up for discussion between thousands of different minds and opinions, often those that are the "boots on the ground" in the industry and seeing everything firsthand.
I'm not associated with the airline industry, just a plane geek, but the more I think about it, it would be a really effective way to open up new ideas to bring to a boardroom/investor meeting. Maybe that is already going on and my search skills are just subpar.
