A 10-year-old Alex Jacquot is an ‘Airline CEO’ and his dream flight may be taking off soon after he wrote a letter to Qantas Airways CEO seeking business advice.
The Australian boy had written the letter to Qantas CEO Alan Joyce, asking for tips and tricks to run the aviation business.
In the hand-written letter, Jacquot urged the Qantas CEO to “take him seriously” while informing him that he had already figured out his staff as he had hired a CFO, a Head of IT, a Head of Maintenance, a Head of onboard services and a Head of Legal for his newly-found “Oceania Express”.
Jacquot, in his letter, said that he had a lot of time on him to work on his dream project as his school was shut for holidays.

Response from Qantas CEO
The letter from the youngest CEO to Australia’s oldest airline’s CEO came on Twitter’s radar and it has since gone viral.
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. pic.twitter.com/JTFpzn5a6Y
