Some of this news will have been announced in other posts..

Washington Dulles - IAD - Moved from 3-class A340-600 to 2-class 777-300ER from 1st January 2008. Daily.

Manchester - MAN - Increased to daily A330-300. Up from a mix of A330-300s and 200s.

Paris - CDG - Changed to 2x weekly A330-300, 2x weekly A330-200 + Daily A340-600.

In other news, as previously mentioned in another one of my posts; A7-BAA will be the first 777-3DZ(ER) for the airline. It will be in a two class configuration.

Thanks Rob!

The 773 config (or should I say 77W config, more accurately!) is in stark contrast from EK's config, which - if I recall correctly, is 42C 385Y, so I'm presuming the QR acft will be in 9 abreast layout? What is the J Class layout - I'm presuming 6 abreast?

Reported on PPRUNE that the govt's VIP A340-200 may be pressed into commercial service, to operate some flights for QR. Any confirmation?

Most 2 class EK 77W are in fact 400Y 42 J quite some difference, shows EKs greed, yet they still pack them right up.

The 10 across 777's of EK are a back breaker. They're packed only because they're usually the cheapest and their just aren't enough seats for all the butts that want to fly.

From what I have heard a A330-200 might be coming from the Amiri-Fleet.  Smile

YUP!  Smile

Some more updates:

DUBAI will get some 77W services
KUL will upgrade to A332 starting Sept. 19, 2007, and BALI will get A332 by dafault.


The A300's are going out. Sept 18 should see the last QR A300 arriving at KUL  Sad

I don't see the need right now to serve JFK because they still doing the Newark Liberty International Airport Via Geneva. I think their next step will be to do the flight non stop then expand into JFK. Also don't forget that JFK is well served from Emirates (Three Daily flights) & Etihad (One Daily flight) so It was cleaver from QR to go to Newark and have the route without competitors.

Yes, these planes will go to FedEx and be converted:

A7-ABO
A7-ABN
A7-AFC
A7-ABW
A7-AFA
A7-AFD

I dont think QR wants to go to EWR nonstop since they said they will increase frequency to 6 times weekly starting in 2008. Perhaps, they might start flights to JFK with A340's or even to LAX.

I next ULH route for QR, I think, is MEL...

absolutely!

The DOH-GVA-EWR route should be upgraded to an A 333 as I feel the A 332 is too small for this route. QR's 3 class A 332 seats 218 pax where as its A 333s seat 259 and should carry 1-2 tonnes more cargo.

Any idea for which long haul route the A 346 used for IAD will be redeployed on?

39 UPPERDECKFAN : Should I read this as a downgrade (3-class service down to 2-class service) or an upgrade (new aircraft)???
40 Behramjee : i would say upgrade in capacity and downgrade with regards to inflight product/service due to there being no first class.
