Last quote by Akbar Al Baker

Competition among air carriers is robust. This is healthy, especially for our passengers, but our competition must remain respectful. For the cabin crew serving aboard all air carriers, professionalism, skill and dedication are the qualities that matter. I was wrong to imply that other factors, like age, are relevant.feedback
