Qantas mulls asset sales: report

Airline may sell stake in frequent flyer division or Jetstar’s Asian arm.

According to the newspaper, sources say the airline will have to have other options ready to implement by the time ratings agencies review its rating in February, though its preference remains for government assistance.
