Qantas Flight Cancellations Pile Pressure on CEO Joyce

Qantas Airways Ltd. canceled one in 12 flights in Australia last month, even more than in May, increasing the pressure on Chief Executive Officer Alan Joyce as the airline struggles to cope with a demand rebound.

Australia’s national airline scrapped 8.1% of scheduled domestic services in June, making it the country’s least reliable carrier, according to a government report released Thursday. Virgin Australia pulled 5.8% of its services.
