The Spanish economy, the eurozone's fourth-largest, grew by 0.6 percent in the second quarter compared with the previous three months, the National Statistics Institute said, confirming its preliminary estimate.

A Qantas aircraft takes off from Sydney Airport on October 26, 2007Australian flag carrier Qantas on Thursday posted a record annual net loss of Aus$2.84 billion (US$2.65 billion), but chief executive Alan Joyce insisted clearer skies lie ahead after aggressively cutting costs. Qantas's underlying loss before tax in the 12 months to June 30 -- its preferred measure of financial performance, which excludes one-off costs and writedowns -- was Aus$646 million, slightly better than forecast. Qantas in February announced it was axing 5,000 jobs, deferring aircraft deliveries, freezing growth at Asian offshoot Jetstar and cutting routes in a bid to turn around its fortunes. With our accelerated Qantas Transformation programme we are already emerging as a leaner, more focused and more sustainable Qantas Group.
