Richard Quest Does the Business at CAPA

Richard Quest from CNN was the conference anchor

The CAPA – Airlines in Transition 2013, a CEO gathering conference, certainly lived up to its name at the Ritz Carlton Hotel in Powerscourt, as chief executives from the world’s airlines gathered to discuss and share their thoughts.

The highlight had to be the Travelport-sponsored Gala Dinner, where CNN anchor  Richard Quest conducted a most entertaining and informative round table active discussions between the guests and a heavy hitters top table. To say that the craic and the banter was mighty would be an understatement.

Quest literally bombarded the top table with hard questions that many other journalists failed to ask. In soccer terms, he ‘put under them under pressure’. It was a fantastic evening that was both innovative and enjoyable.

Code-sharing partners: David Barger, Chief Executive, JetBlue, with Christoph Mueller, Chief Executive, Aer Lingus
