In what may be of interest to 67 million travelers, 12-year American Airlines veteran Suzanne Rubin is replacing Maya Leibman as president of American’s AAdvantage frequent-flier program.

We say 67 million because that’s how many AAdvantage members American counted in American’s 2010 annual report.

Leibman was just named chief information officer and senior vice president of information technology, creating the spot for Rubin, who has been managing director of customer loyalty.

“Suzanne Rubin is a natural fit to lead AAdvantage,” American chief commercial officer Virasb Vahidi said in the announcement. “Not only does she have significant breadth of experience, but she also possesses a personal passion for our members and the program.”

“One of the highlights of my career has been my time as President of AAdvantage, and I am thrilled to see Suzanne Rubin assume this leadership role,” said Leibman. “Suzanne is already familiar with the program, and I’m confident she will continue to meet and exceed the high expectations of our members.”

Since graduating with her MBA in 1999 from Indiana University, Rubin has held a number of jobs at American, including revenue management analyst, senior analyst of airline profitability & financial analysis, director of distribution strategy, managing director of leisure sales, president of American Airlines Vacations, managing director of merchandising and distribution strategy, and managing director of revenue management & pricing.
