Gay Qantas CEO signs deal with 10-year-old boy who sent him cute letter
Gay Qantas CEO Alan Joyce has signed a deal with 10-year-old Alex Jacquot, who sent him an adorable handwritten letter asking for advice on running an airline.
The legally non-binding memorandum of understanding between the Australian giant and the boy’s Oceania Express, which was signed during a meeting at Qantas, states that “if there are any disagreements, my mum will call your mum to sort it out.”
It also agrees that Qantas will help Oceania Express with fleet and network matters, branding and marketing, and in return will receive ideas “on how to make long-haul flying more fun for kids,” MailOnline has reported.

The deal will reportedly come into effect in 2026—as soon as Alex has finished school.

In his letter to Joyce, Alex urged the CEO and LGBT+ activist to “please take me seriously” before explaining he had started Oceania Express airline with his friend and “Vice-CEO” Wolf Stringer.
Joyce responded by asking the boy to attend a meeting at Qantas, explaining that he “too was once a young boy who was so curious about flight and all its possibilities.”
