Adelaide to Sydney on a most important mission.
Qantas, an acronym for "Queensland and Northern Territory Aerial Services", is Australia's national airline, the world's second oldest continuously running independent airline and the 11th largest in the world. It was founded in Winton, Queensland in November 1920 and their first aircraft was purchased for £1425.
Today, Qantas flies me to Sydney to see William, who is now 6 months old and a bit of a Qantas frequent flyer himself. Two days before William's birth, the Air Hostess on this flight assured me that my daughter was definitely having a baby girl.
Qantas' safety record may be the best in the world, but their sex predictions are, well, inaccurate. William, who thinks it's a hoot, says "I fooled you, Grandpa!"
