PERTH, AUSTRALIA - OCTOBER 29: Signage is displayed in departures to advise Qantas passengers about flight cancellations at Perth Domestic Terminal on October 29, 2011 in Perth, Australia. Qantas CEO Alan Joyce announced at a press conference that all Qantas flights, both domestic and international are to be grounded immediately. Joyce has blamed ongoing Industrial action as the reason behind the grounding. As of 8pm Sunday all workers involved in the dispute will be locked out of the company, and in the interest of safety the decision was made to ground the fleet of 108 planes in 22 countries straight away. Transport Minister Anthony Albanese announced that the government will apply to Fair Work Australia for an outcome, but said he was 'extremely concerned'. (Photo by Paul Kane/Getty Images) less
