Qantas seeks settlement with Rolls-Royce

Qantas’s CEO Alan Joyce stated the airline is working towards a commercial settlement with Rolls-Royce over November’s mid-air engine explosion (E&T Transport Desk, 20-Jan-2011). Mr Joyce said he hopes to reach an out-of-court settlement with the British engine manufacturer, but has initiated a lawsuit in an Australian court should the settlement not come through.
