A Qantas airliner had to follow an Air New Zealand jet across the Pacific after its weather radar broke down leaving it 'flying blind'.

The Air New Zealand flight crew provided information about the weather ahead to the Qantas Boeing 747-400 jumbo jet carrying 284 passengers as the two aircraft made the 12-hour journey from Los Angeles to Auckland, a Qantas spokesman said.

The Qantas flight later continued on to Sydney, its scheduled destination.

I would still fly QANTAS over United any day of the week. However due to the fact that the economy is down I booked on United for my annual winter migration down there. Every little bit helps when helping U.S. companies.
