Doubtful. He left AAY quite suddenly, reportedly because he was tired of playing second fiddle to an increasingly stubborn, micro-managing CEO that refused to hand over the reins. AL was a huge component to the success of AAY and looked to settle the growing labor issues and focus on growing the company. Likewise, he probably found himself boxed-in at the highly structured, stuffy UAL. The prospect of becoming President or CEO dissolved when Kirby was hired from AA to be the President and CEO Munoz, a heart-transplant recipient, was showing no signs of stepping down.

Time will tell, but I believe he's looking to take his talent, experience and insight, surround himself with like-minded colleagues, and try his hand at running his own show. JMO

(Forbes) Travel industry analyst and advisor Henry Harteveldt described Levy’s decision as “a vote of no-confidence” in some of the leadership at United. “My understanding is that Mr. Levy had become frustrated with some things at United that led to a point of no return,” he said. The frustration—whatever it might have been—was not with the airline’s CEO, Oscar Munoz, however. “[It] was more with [United’s President] Scott Kirby, perhaps others at the senior level,” Harteveldt said. “I don’t have insight into the specific actions that triggered him to leave [today]. I’m not aware that he has another job…but at this point he reached the end of whatever rope he had.”

(CNBC) "I have some interesting opportunities and now is the right time for me to move forward.".....Levy wrote on his LinkedIn page that he is "considering several exciting opportunities and will choose one in the coming weeks."

Note the similarities to this and his announcement following his departure from AAY:

"These past 13 years have been exciting, and I am extremely proud of the company we have built, but it is time for me to pursue more entrepreneurial opportunities.
