Re: Qantas operates its last commercial 747 service to the US

I hate to be overly pedantic, but this is not the last flight to the US, it is the last flight to the mainland US.

If the passenger has liability insurance or better yet, an umbrella policy, it's likely the insurance company will end up paying. So it won't really affect the passenger aside from increased insurance premiums.
