the death of QANTAS*

yer, i know, only my opinion.

Has a long history,  but If it ain't making a profit, me Irish immigrant  laddie CEO - shut it down. Retire the name. No longer exists, except in history.. Call it something else.

Hudson Fyshe may, or not, approve.

*Queensland and Northern Territory Air Service.
Ah, acronyms -- where would we be without them?

Schadenfreude or just being practical?

practical .. ain't no shadingfred about the name of QANTAS.

JM, QANTAS as a name, a carrier of people into the air, safely, without parallel. However, economic imperatives may well Force the CEO to seek other, cheaper, alternatives.

Some of those choices may well involve the occasional loss of aircraft and human life. So be it, i wish him well .. but DO NOT USE THE NAME OF QANTAS.

JM, some short anecdotes, about pilots.

Little old lady toddles up to airline pilot. "Is flying dangerous?".
Pilot; "Nup .. only when ya get close to the ground".

"There's a bold pilot, and an old pilot. Not too many old, bold pilots".

... que ...
