Hi Everyone,

I just got into PHX yesterday flew in on US #333 from JFK and seen a Qatar Airways A340 next to the Qatar B747SP. Does anyone know how long the A340 will be in PHX? Has anyone taken any photos of it either?

Are you sure it is Qatar and not Qatar Amiri?

I saw the Qatar Airways A340-200 yesterday.
The aircraft is in the Qatar Airliways old livery and says Qatar Airways on it, however, I ma prety sure that airtcraft is solely used for the Qatar Amiri flight.
By the way that 747SP has been flying in and out of PHX for a couple of months now. Only once have I seen it in movement, taxiing past terminal4.

Regards,

Chepos

It's an Amiri Flight bird. Came in on the 16th from GVA, went on to LAX, then came back a few days ago. Reg is A7-HHK.

What's the difference between Qatar Airways and Qatar Amiri? I'm guessing Amiri has something to do with the royal family?


PHX based

Correct. They have a A319, a global express, 340 and a 747SP. The SP is not in the new livery unlike the rest. Its easy to spot. I take it that the family was shopping or visiting doctors.

There's also a Mayo Clinic over in the Scottsdale area. And, without hesitation, PHX has better credability for warmer weather vs. RST.

Apparently someone in the royal family has been getting medical treatment @ The Mayo Clinic.

The 747SP belongs to the Emir´s father of Qatar. It is still in the old Qatar livery.  Smile

That a/c belongs in the new livery. Any idea on how long the A340 will be in PHX?

I do not know whether it is in the Qatar Amiri flight to be honest. But by looking at reg I would say no. Personally ( having seen this great A/C) I like the current one very much!

These are Amiri airplanes, all used exclusively for VIP transport of the Royal family and sometimes governement dignitaries.

All operated by a totally seperate wing. QR livery for security reasons.

The 747SP is the personal plane of the Amir's father.
