Raymond Babbitt (Dustin Hoffman) famously quipped in Rain Man that Qantas has never had an accident. That’s almost true: the Australian carrier hasn’t had a fatal crash since 1951. Founded in 1920 as the Queensland and Northern Territory Aerial Services, the airline is known for its long-haul routes, from the Empire flying boats that once made the nine-day trip from London to Sydney to the Airbus 380, which undertakes the same trip in 23 hours.
