QATAR Airways’ outspoken ceo Akbar Al Baker was in fine form at last night’s gala (see page 8)to mark the Doha-based airline’s entry into Canberra this week.
Not one to shy away from controversial statements, Al Baker highlighted the size and age of his airline’s fleet of 200+ planes and an average age under five years, and remarked, “I’m sure your national carrier must be very jealous”.
The event also saw a number of lucky attendees win a set of Economy and Business class return tickets to anywhere on Qatar Airways’ global network.
When Queanbeyan City Travel & Cruise’s Jim Cooper was drawn as the Business class winner, Al Baker stormed the stage, saying “You’ll have to sell more seats Jim. Those seats won’t be free”.
