Qantas said it was the first time in its history it had sought to terminate an employment terms agreement, or a contract between employers and unions, which is a rare and heated move in industrial relations in Australia. If it succeeds, cabin crew pay and conditions would revert to a much lower Australian minimum industry standard while a new pact is negotiated.
Southwest Airlines Co was sued for $10 million on Tuesday by a 68-year-old Florida woman who said the carrier ejected her from a flight because she periodically needed to remove her mask to drink water.

Southwest had no immediate comment, having yet to review the complaint.
