A 10-year-old boy asked Qantas for advice on how to set up an airline — its CEO responded with a follow-up meeting

It’s not unusual for companies to be inundated with messages from people looking for answers — what is rare, however, is for a CEO to personally respond to one. Yet one 10-year-old schoolboy appears to have succeeded, grabbing the attention of the boss behind one of Australia’s largest airlines.

Alex Jacquot recently penned a letter to Qantas, the largest domestic and international air carrier in Australia, to ask CEO Alan Joyce, what advice he’d give to get an airline company off the ground.

Jacquot appealed to the CEO to “please take me seriously,” when asking Joyce on what it takes to be a CEO and on advancing a business.
