Qantas will continue to fly over war zones

A number of airlines have been criticised for refusing to alter flight paths since downing of Flight MH17.

    Following the shooting down of Malaysia Airlines flight 17 over Ukraine, a number of airlines have faced criticism for continuing to fly over conflict zones.

    Some have now agreed to reroute their planes but Qantas insists its aircraft are safe.
