One of the airline industry’s best interviews is Qatar Airways chairman and chief executive Akbar Al Baker. I caught up with him in a joint interview with Max Kingsley-Jones, the deputy editor of Flight International, at the Farnborough Air Show on Tuesday at his chalet.
The video we grabbed doesn’t do justice to a very entertaining and insightful discussion, but it does give you a flavour of the subjects over which our interview ranged.
Topics covered in the interview included what he will do in Doha if challenged by a low-cost player; and what he understands Boeing might have to do to meet its production rate challenges on the much-delayed 787 Dreamliner.
