Discuss and analyse whether the involvement of Australia's Qantas Airways in international operations has hindered or enhanced the company's performance.

If you are not sure how a report is written, please contact Communication Learning Centre (CLC) at your campus. This is a research assignment, as a starting point I have posted three documents on Qantas Airways that contain useful information in Moodle under Qantas Airways Information 1, 2 & 3.

You can include any current issues or any information that has an impact on Qantas Airways Ltd risk management.Please use headings and sub-headings to help the reader/marker to easily understand what is being discussed.
