Qantas' website goes all-but-titsup for an hour

Choosing a cloud hosting partner with confidence

Australian flag carrier QANTAS' website went all-but-titsup for at least an hour on Monday afternoon.

El Reg tried to book a ticket at 1:50 PM AEST and found the site operated only in very limited mode, with basic booking functions only on offer.

Even that functionality was flaky: the site changed from the limited graphical mode to a retro 1994-style Mosaic mode before we could book a return flight to Melbourne.
