    Cost no factor in Qantas rescue missions: Dixon
    November 2 2002
    By Stephen Dabkowski

    Qantas' Bali rescue missions last month cost the airline "tens of millions of dollars".

    Chief executive Geoff Dixon said yesterday the decision to send in empty jets to help ferry Australians out of Bali after the bombings on October 12 was justified, and Qantas would take the cost "on the chin". "We didn't have any choice; it was the right thing to do," he said.

    Am I correct in thinking that "tens of millions" is at least 20 miliion? Could this possibly be correct?

    Good on them for assisting - but methinks Mr Dixon is somewhat over the top in his claim.
