Have you ever wondered what it would be like to talk tech with Bill Gates or sports with Kobe Bryant? Australian schoolboy, Alex Jacquot, did just that when he got to talk business with his favorite businessman, Qantas CEO Alan Joyce. The 10-year-old boy sent an adorable letter to the Qantas CEO and the Twittersphere is loving it!
Sky’s The Limit
Jacquot is clearly an entrepreneur in the making. In his letter, the little boy claimed that he already has experience as the chief executive officer of his own airline “Oceania Express” as he begged the Qantas CEO to “please take me seriously.”
The boy then informed the industry veteran that, “I have already started some stuff like what type of planes I’ll need, flight numbers, catering and more.” Looks like he’s got his airline all planned out!
Not only does Jacquot supposedly have experience, but he’s also hired a few employees to help him out. One of the most pressing questions that this little one had for the Qantas CEO was how people could rest well during a 25-hour flight.
Surprisingly, the Qantas CEO actually responded to the little one with some solid business advice. He posted his response to young Jacquot on Twitter and the Internet collectively lost it.
Big Boss, Little Boss
The Qantas Twitter post joked that “Our competitors don’t normally ask us for advice, but when an airline leader reached out, we couldn’t ignore it.”
The number one piece of advice that Qantas gave the little boy was to make sure that the passengers had enough space to stretch and to exercise. Better start waiting in line now for Jacquot’s new airline because tickets are sure to sell fast!
Social media response was beyond supportive
@IMeanGreenI felt the love on Twitter, saying “Now this is dreaming big! These days, people need to dream big and set goals! What a feeling he must’ve had to the letter”

@MaldeShreyas kept it real on Twitter, writing “Good thing he didn’t write to United. They would have told him to learn to drag customers off plane first.”
