10-Year-Old Writes To Airline CEO For Advice. His Heartwarming Reply...

Alex Jacquot received a sweet response from Qantas CEO Alan Joyce.


The CEO of Qantas Airways recently took the time to reply to a young boy's letter, and his heartwarming response is winning people over. Alex Jacquot, a 10-year-old from Australia, wrote to Qantas CEO Alan Joyce, asking for advice on starting an airline.

Alex, as self-proclaimed co-founder and CEO of "Oceania Express," was looking for tips on running an airline. Now, his handwritten letter, and Mr Joyce's sweet response to it, have gone viral online after being shared on Twitter by Qantas.

"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," said Qantas while sharing a picture of Alex, along with the letters.

In his letter, Alex wrote: "I'm Alex Jacquot, a 10-year-old boy (please take me seriously) and I want to start an airline."

He went on to talk about the things he had already figured out, like catering, and the staff he had hired for his airline - Oceania Express. While ending the letter, he also asked Alan Joyce if he could offer any advice on how people could sleep during long flights.

The CEO, in response, wrote: "Thank you for letting me know about your new airline. I had heard some rumours of another entrant in the market, so I appreciate you taking the time to write."

He added that while he did not generally give business advice to competition, he was making an exception in this case as he too was once a young boy "curious about flight and all its possibilities."

He also invited Alex to a meeting to "compare notes on what it's like to run an airline."

His heartwarming response has won him much praise online:

According to Daily Mail, Alex's mother Natasha Jacquot said that she was not expecting such a great response. The family is now waiting on a confirmation of the dates for Alex's meeting with Mr Joyce.
