thepointsguy.comQatar Airways’ Chief Executive Akbar Al Baker is making headlines again for his outspoken and controversial personality. This time around, Al Baker is threatening — again — to leave the Oneworld alliance.
In an interview with FlightGlobal, Al Baker said that if certain airline partners continue with blocking tactics and accusing Qatar of wrongdoing, the airline will pull out of Oneworld.
This whole shenanigan has to stop, it has gone too far,” Al Baker said. “If Qatar Airways leaves Oneworld it will send a very wrong message to the world about alliances.” Qatar’s problems specifically sit with partners American Airlines and Qantas.
