Australian carrier Qantas Airways has dismissed reports that it was considering selling a stake to Dubai's Emirates Airline, AFP has reported. "I don't know where these stories have come from," Qantas Airways chief executive Alan Joyce said. "What I am seeing in the press is completely wrong," Joyce said. Qantas last week said it would split its international and domestic arms as part of a drive to turn around its fortunes after an 83% slump in first-half net profit in the six months to December.
