It's Qantas!

Please, people. Not to sound rude, but QANTAS is an acronym, not a 'real' word. It stands for Queens And Northern Territoral Air Service. It really bugs me when people spell it with a, please excuse me, a 'u'. Get it right!

....and please get the name right also....

Queensland and Northern Territory Aerial Service Ltd was the name under which the company was incorporated in 1920

I am sorry. I thought I got it right. Oh, well. I was close. I couldn't remember if it was Aerial or Air?!
