10-year-old boy’s adorable letter to Qantas CEO seeking advice on running his own airline

A young schoolboy has written the sweetest letter to the CEO of Qantas asking him for advice on how to run his own airline. 

Eager entrepreneur, 10-year-old Alex Jacquot, has founded his own airline ‘Oceania Express’ with his best friend from school. Seeking “tips on starting an airline”, the Year 4 student wrote a letter to Qantas boss Alan Joyce during his school holidays.

On Monday, Qantas posted Alex’s letter on its Twitter page, saying, “our competitors don’t normally ask us for advice, but when an airline leader reached out, we couldn’t ignore it. Naturally, there was only one way to respond: CEO to CEO.”

“I’m Alex Jacquot, a 10-year-old boy (please take me seriously) and I want to start an airline,” his handwritten letter reads.

Alex goes on to say that he has done much planning including in-flight meals, staffing and the issuing of flight numbers. He decided to write to Joyce personally to ask his advice on other airline business matter, including ideas on what a CEO should be doing when running an airline and how one gets sleep on a 25 hour flight to London.

“Thank you for letting me know about your new airline,” Joyce wrote in his reply. “I too was once a young boy curious about flight and all it’s possibilities.”

In his response, Joyce invited Alex to a meeting where they could “compare notes” and a tour of the Qantas operations centre.

Natasha Jacquot, Alex’s mother, said she was not expecting such a ‘great response.’

“He’s got notebooks full of flight numbers, he’s sorted out the menus on different flights,” she told The Australian

“They have regular meetings at school planning whatever aspect they need to plan,” she said according to The Daily Mail
