    QANTAS has been forced to admit it lost track of an unaccompanied child passenger last month, leaving the 11-year-old boy to wander on his own late at night in a crowded airport.

    Airline staff not only lost the paperwork relating to their young passenger, they failed to realise he was even in their care.

    The incident happened late on the evening of September 28 when the arrivals hall of Hobart Airport was in mayhem because storms in Melbourne had led to flight delays, passenger disruption and lost baggage.

    Unbelievable.... and certainly unacceptable. I hope that the idiots in charge of the kid got fired... at least. So many things could have gone dead wrong... :eek: :mad:

    The title "... Rarely Happens" reminds me of Willy Wonka's response when Augustus Gloop is lost in the pipes. Take him to the taffy pulling room! Little boys are very flexible, he'll be fine.

    Nah, the usual Qantas solution is to promote them into middle management where they can't do any more harm to customers!

    if this is the case... then SQ can be happy they will soon buy Qantas for a few cents on the dollar.... unless the Oz government bails them out, if they are sooo poorly managed they will end up in Chap11... :confused:
