Qatar Airways CEO calls U.S. flight attendants ‘grandmothers,’ riling unions and prompting Delta response
At a gala at an InterContinental hotel in Dublin, Ireland last week to celebrate Qatar Airways’ launch of its Dublin-Doha route, Al Baker told the audience that “the average age of my cabin crew is only 26 years.”
“So there is no need for you to travel on these crap American carriers,” Al Baker said. “You know you’re always being served by grandmothers on American carriers.”
I've observed the same phenomenon myself. Asian carriers tend to have younger flight attendants whereas they come in all ages on NA carriers. Thoughts?
