Qatar Airways CEO Shades Lufthansa’s New Offering

Qatar Airways CEO Akbar Al Baker is one of the most interesting people in the airline industry and there’s never a dull moment when he has a press conference. In his most recent one held at the ITB Berlin, one of the largest travel trade shows in the world, he announced a significant expansion and then took questions from the audience.

During the Q&A period, he was asked about Lufthansa. Specifically, a reporter mentioned how Lufthansa recently lost its Skytrax five-star rating and asked Al Baker what his thoughts were on Lufthansa’s new Allegris cabins, and if he’d fly on Lufthansa if he were invited by Lufthansa Group CEO Carsten Spohr.
