But apparently not how to spell it. Qantas is an acronym and doesn't have a u-after-q.

Cathay Pacific ranked third, followed by Emirates and then Etihad Airways which was only established in 2003.

Qantas ranked 13th despite a similarly clean aircraft loss record since 1983. However, JACDEC director Jan Richter said Qantas had experienced multiple incidents where a serious accident had nearly occurred in recent years

Seriously? they avoided potential serious accidents and that means they are unsafe?, to me it would mean I want those guys flying my plane.

Stupid list is stupid.

I'd rather fly on an airline where the incidents don't happen in the first place.
