Since 2010

Life was never dull

From the opening paragraph of chapter 12 of The Flying Kangaroo:

The aviation industry has changed to such an extent that it’s difficult to imagine some of the characters who worked in Qantas in years past ever holding down a job at the airline today. Most would not take offence if you suggested they would find it hard to reconcile themselves with either the advances in technology or perhaps the pressures of doing business in an increasingly competitive world. Broadly speaking too, in aviation and most other industries, the days of the colourful people would no longer be tolerated in an environment of shareholder interests and 24-hour media scrutiny.
