With the slight delay in arrivals of their B777-200LR's QR has put up almost a months delay to their Qatar - Texas non stop flight launch. Also they have rationalized their timings in such a way so that they provide good connections to the Indian sub continent.

Earlier the schedules were

QR 077 DOH - IAH 0120 0905
QR 078 IAH - DOH 1210 1200+1

Eff 8th December, The new schedules are

QR 077 DOH - IAH 0915 1700
QR 078 IAH - DOH 1930 1925+1

The revised timings are fit to connect their vast network in the Indian subcontinent. This route will go daily from 5th January 2009.

From what i read in the articles, the company responsible for creating the galleies delayed the outfitting of the plane, thus delaying its delievery.

 checkmark  EK has a similar delay with their aircraft that has delayed their LAX and SFO inaugurals.

On a sidenote, I can't wait to see QR among those at Terminal D during the early evenings!

The route couldn't be flown with 77W equipment? EK has subbed a 77W before on DXB-IAH, how much of a difference is there in distance?

That was just once I think because one of the B77L's went tech. The B77W's can do IAH - DXB/DOH but not DOH/DXB - IAH.

Yes, and the -3ER on the route that day was reported to have taken HEAVY weight penalties. It turned into a non-issue, because they hadn't sold the additional capacity, from what someone down in IAH said at the time.

This is correct...they only sold the LR capacity on the 773ER so they were Ok...



When in doubt, hold on to your altitude. No-one has ever collided with the sky.

I wonder how full that flight would be! Sure the return segment isn't in J?
