In the film "Rainman" some years ago, Dustin Hoffman's role
character is afraid of flying and mentions several accidents the
specific airline has been involved in.

He gets the reply "every airline has crashed!", but immediately
returns: "Quantas has never crashed!"

Well, I don't know if this is true ... or is special at all ...
Is it?
