    Qantas: 'Flying over Iraq is safe'

    To be honest, I wish that Qantas would follow Emirates lead.

    Herd behavior is almost always wrong. Smart animal species (dolphins, wolves) know this and use it to catch their prey. I think that Qantas deserve our praise for doing its own risk assessment.

    I have no idea how they arrived at that conclusion though. Perhaps for their routes, alternatives were not much better.
