This book is the account of the Qantas story that every airline passenger needs to read: the full and frank history of Australia's national airline - updated with two new chapters

It takes you into the boardroom, where golden parachutes are signed off, and onto the hangar floor, where engineers battle accounting cuts to keep planes flying safely. It takes you back to the foundation of the airline to disprove the line that Qantas never crashes. This is the warts and all history the Qantas PR department does not want you to read ... but you can bet they'll be reading it too!
