Sydney-Dallas flight may be chopped


The world's longest commercial flight faces termination unless Qantas and American Airlines can win over US regulators, reports Bloomberg.
The airlines have asked the US Department of Transportation a second time to approve a joint venture with antitrust immunity in their bid to deepen ties on flights across the Pacific.
Rejection could mean the end of Qantas's marathon 17-hour Sydney-Dallas service, which requires a codeshare arrangement with American to be financially viable.
Qantas has made super-long flights a cornerstone of its international strategy. It's scheduled to start 17-hour flights between Perth and London next month. It has also challenged Airbus and Boeing to build a jet by 2022 that can fly even further - from Sydney to London without a break.
