"As a passenger, we don't see the amount of work being done at an airline; we tend to think an airline is only made of pilots and flight attendants but there is so much more happening out there!"
"I always knew I wanted to work for an airline, but I didn't know what I could do, where to start?"
"I was lucky I started in the Network Planning area, which is very central and gave me exposure to the entire airline"
"I had exposure to CEO level issues at a relatively young age and it made me grasp the global picture quicker"
