Oz Police probe suspected sabotage of Qantas jet
Canberra: Officials say Australian police are investigating the suspected sabotage of the entertainment system on a Qantas Airways airliner during the ongoing bitter labour dispute between the airline and the aircraft maintenance union.
Qantas said in a statement on Wednesday that engineers noticed several wires were cut on the in-flight entertainment system of a Qantas Boeing 767 undergoing maintenance at Brisbane Airport on Australia`s eastern coast on October 26.
Qantas said there was no risk to the plane. It had no further comment.
The incident occurred days before Qantas grounded its entire fleet at the weekend and threatened to lock out unions whose rolling strikes and work bans had cost the Australian airline millions of dollars in recent months.
