Airlineratings.com Editor-in-Chief Geoffrey Thomas has appeared on Ticker News to talk about the apology by Qantas CEO Alan Joyce.
Mr Thomas said that while the apology was welcome as few airline chiefs have said sorry for the global airline and airport chaos he warned that many challenges remain for Qantas.
He added that it may be the middle of next year before airline and airport operations return to normal.

Airlineratings.com was developed to provide everyone in the world a one-stop shop for everything related to airlines, formed by a team of aviation editors, who have forensically researched nearly every airline in the world.
Our rating system is rated from one to seven stars on safety – with seven being the highest ranking. Within each airline, you will find the country of origin, airline code, booking URL and seat map information. The rating system takes into account a number of different factors related to audits from aviation’s governing bodies, lead associations, as well as the airlines, own safety data. Every airline has a safety rating breakdown so you can see exactly how they rate.
Over 230 of the airlines on the site that carry 99 per cent of the world’s passengers have a product rating. Given that low-cost, regional and full-service carriers are so different we have constructed a different rating system for each which can be found within each airline.
