Comments from a Qantas spokesman:

“We have utmost respect for current and former defence force personnel, and we honour their service in a few ways during the year,  including special announcements on ANZAC Day and Remembrance Day, and through our partnership with the Australian War Memorial.

“We also have a lot of former Airforce personnel and current defence force reservists working at Qantas.

“We’re conscious that we carry a lot of exceptional people every day, including veterans, police, paramedics, nurses, firefighters and others, and so we find it difficult to single out a particular group as part of the boarding process.” (Note: With the exception of passengers with specific needs.)
