Another QANTAS incident - the price of CEO Alan Joyce's 'cost-cutting' and off-shoring maintenance

This morning a Qantas A380 at high altitude over Indonesia with 433 passengers and 26 crew had an engine failure.

Engine failures are becoming all to common at QANTAS. Off-shoring, contracting out and cost-cutting by QANTAS are compromising engineering maintenance standards. Cheap maintenance will catch up with QANTAS and beckon its tragic ruin. Low-cost carriers and high altitude don't mix.
CEO Alan Joyce's management policy of cheap maintenance is not an ethical competitive strategy for a public airline; it is a deceptive public time bomb.
