Quoting CV580Freak (Reply 1): I wondered if this was in the offing after Qatar 'gifted' the A300 to the Pakistan government recently
there's always a catch when lavish gifts are given from one state to another
Quoting 777way (Thread starter):
Qatar Airways have proposed to start domestic flights in Pakistan which is being considered by the govt. according to a brief paragraph in an unrelated article in Pakistani press.
I honestly doubt that this will happen but will not be surprised to see QR getting daily rights to ISB/LHE and PEW in return of gifting that VIP A 310-300 to the Pak Govt. Even if QR get 5 weekly to LHE and ISB, they'll be happy...currently they only fly twice weekly to LHE and 3 times a week to ISB all nonstop from DOH and that they feel justifiably is very inefficient with EY has daily rights and EK has 4 weekly to LHE and 5 weekly ISB !!!
