Qantas to cut 1,000 jobs after profit warning

The Australian airline Qantas is to cut 1,000 jobs after warning of a potential loss of 300 million Australian dollars in the six months to the end of December. The carrier says it's been hit hard by the strong Australian dollar, higher fuel prices and falling passenger numbers. Meanwhile, tourism officials in Northern Ireland are hoping to cash in on the landscape featured in "Game of Thrones".
