Qantas CEO responds to 10-year old boy's letter seeking his advice, wins hearts on internet

New Delhi: The Internet is going ga-ga over the response of Qantas Airlines CEO to a 10-year-old boy who wrote a letter seeking his advice.

I’m Alex Jacquot, a 10-year-old boy (please take me seriously) and I want to start an airline,” wrote the boy.

He then wrote that he is the CEO of the airline which is called Oceana Express. “I have also hired a CFO, a head of IT, a head of maintenance, a head of board services, and a head of legal as well, along with my friend Wolf,” the 10-year old added.

“Do you have any idea of what I can do? Seeing as you are the CEO Qantas, I thought I'd ask you,” the boy wrote.

The letter and the response was shared by Qantas on twitter and has won many hearts on the internet:

Responding to his letter, Qantas CEO Alon Joyce thanked Jacquot for letting him know about the new airline. “I had heard some rumours of another entrant in the market,so I appreciate you taking the time to write,” he wrote.

Twitter was soon flooded with heart-warming reaction on the entire episode

The Qantas CEO infact invited Jacquot  to a “Project Sunrise meeting between myself, as the CEO of Austra lia's oldest airline, and you,as the CEO of Australia's newest airline”.

Alon Joyce signed off saying, “Thank you, again, for your letter. I'll be in touch shortly about finding a time for our meeting,” .
