Qantas Never Crashed. Never Crashed.

I guess Raymond "Rain Man" Babbitt would be happy about this development. And my pal Tearlach Hutcheson, that Landmark Theater-lovin' Aussie who flies to Sydney regularly (which is to say, more than you or I). "Imagine you're from New York and have to fly to Los Angeles, whch is five hours, and then jump on a plane and fly another 14 hours," he says. "Now all you have to do is fly to Dallas, and then you're Down Under. We're all flying from Dallas direct to London and Paris, so why not fly direct the other way?" S'cool, just as long as Qantas doesn't try to fly into Love Field. --Robert Wilonsky
