Can anyone confirm....

QR's flights from BEY to DOH have been assigned MEA flights 438 and 436.

Very strange....

Yegbey01

Its true.

The early flight is QR429 will be operated by A320s and c/s with MEA as ME438

The late flight is QR423 will be operated by A321s and c/s with MEA as ME436


Why do you think its strange?

Again, nice catch Yegbey01!

Yes, MEA is code-sharing with Qatar Airways on this route.

It's clear they want to provide more options for customers.

Perhaps in preparation for Skyteam?

BA, I see your point, but then what strikes me is that QR is so much closer to Star Alliance. Any thoughts?

In any case, great to hear ME is partnering with some premier airlines.

I meant that because MEA is code-sharing with them, they can now provide customers to Doha if Skyteam passengers come to Beirut to transit.

Just took a look at the schedules.

MEA will code-share with Qatar Airways' Beirut flight starting March 28.

Doha (DOH) - Beirut (BEY)


Beirut (BEY) - Doha (DOH)


In the summer, Qatar Airways will upgrade this flight to an A321 and add a 2nd daily late night flight on an A320, QR428/429. MEA will also code-share on this 2nd flight as ME439/438.

It will operate until the end of September.

It's good that MEA will be code-sharing on this flight because it provides additional options to MEA customers and it will increase overall loads on the flight. Perhaps we will see Qatar Airways operate a 2nd flight on a couple days of the week throughout the rest of the year, or upgrade to an A300-600R which they do quite often on the route.

Regards

Here is an article about the code-share agreement:

If anyone finds any other articles, post them.

In addition, MEA has partnered up with the 2nd largest Lebanese bank, Banque Audi to create an MEA credit card in which MEA Cedar Miles members can acquire mileage points when using this credit card on anything they buy.

Two cards are offered, the silver card and the gold card.

With the silver card, you earn one mileage point for every $1.50 spent and with the gold card, you earn one mileage point for every $1.00 spent.



Check out this page for more information on the card:

It's offered to Lebanese residents only.

Regards
