There she is in all her glory, A7-BAA. I found the pic in http://microvoltradio.com/images/kpae2024.jpg

She is scheduled to be delievered in mid-November with flights to Dubai shortly afterwards. Starting January 1, she will daily to Washington DC. Her sister A7-BAB is scheduled to arrive after the first delievery. QR is no longer an All-Airbus Airline.

PIC WAS TAKEN BY Matt Cawby, with thanks.

Nice photo. Cant wait to see inside . Its weird to see a non Airbus A/C in the QR fleet. Im so used to seeing them with all airbus. Anyway I love the 777 and glad QR will have more types.

Any chance that it will be on static display at the Dubai Airshow? Boeing have yet to release their schedule.

Yeah you are, but with the actual image showing, every time someone loads the page it downloads the pic again and that scoffs loads of bandwidth on the host's site. A pic URL link doesn't do that as the pic only loads when someone clicks the link!

Why is QR changing the DOH-IAD-DOH flight from the A346 to B77W so quickly? What is QR going to do with the freed up A346 frames?

What's the configuration of the 77W? Does it have a first class?



oh boy!!!

I am going to hazard that they are going to put it on a new longhaul route or on a high yielding route such as LHR. I know on of QR's dailies to LHR is a 346.

Can't WAIT to see it on their 772LRs, which I feel it would suit even better.

...congrats to another airline with the inspirational vision to go beyond just another tragically-boring EuroWhite livery!

I'm sure you'll be impressed, they are great in flight. DOH itself is a little ragged though unless you are in J or F and using the VIP terminal. A small caveat, out of the 3 times that I've been scheduled to fly the 346 LHR-DOH or DOH-LHR it has been subbed twice. According to a source on A.net one of those two was the aircraft going mech, I was not able to find out about the other incident.

wrong...the first route for QRs B 773ERs are DOH-DXB test flights and then DOH-IAD nonstop from mid January onwards.

The question posed was where the 346 will go once the 77W takes over DOH-IAD.

I agree that the 77W does look wicked in QR colors. As far as ordering more Boeings go I think they will if/when the are convinced of the effectiveness of the type on the types of stages they put it on.

I will be in J, but i'm not sure if i will be using the VIP terminal or not...! I will be arriving from JFK one hour before my flight. any ideas if i will have enough time to stop by the lounge?

I called QR customer service and they told me not to worry, if i didn't catch this flight there is another one that leaves couple of hours after my sheduled flight. any reasons why they have 2 flights in a very short period?

as of Incidents i think all airlines get some incidents so i'm not too much worry about that.

the 77W is an amazing aircraft, in terms of PAX, Cargo and shape. i would think that the 772 would be perfect for there need, and once they try the B77W they will never regret  Smile

Sorry I seem to have confused you. The VIP terminal in question is in DOH not LHR. Based on your two posts together you seem to be booked for JFK-LHR-DOH. Terminal 3 at LHR can be quite crammed in the mornings. I would just get on with it and get to the next gate there. At DOH you will be whisked through the VIP terminal.

Well that morning window of flights ex LHR allows QR to get its birds back to DOH in time (flying time and time difference) to connect onwards to destinations further east as well as a surprising amount of traffic headed to Africa.

Doha is an interesting place. My sister works out there for the Qatar Olympic Committee who are bidding to host the 2016 games. The scale and scope of some of the undertakings in Doha are crazy. Not Dubai-crazy but to tell you the truth that is what I like about it. It's ambitious but not overly extravagant. Enjoy your trip!
