Will it be with a 787? I know it was hinted in the past.

Really surprised why EK still hasn't joined the party

Maybe someone would again misinterpret this as QR joining oneworld ... just like EY

No, but I think with all the work the OneWorld carriers are putting in talking to the Gulf carriers that its logical that one could join.

Until UA could even make those IAD flights all nonstops instead of tag-ons (BAH / DOH), it's gonna be hard to imagine any other hub gaining Gulf flights

We've heard the EY rumor for how many years already ? QR used to have a big code-share with PMUA and even that didn't lead to anything larger.

My information is that talks are advanced to induct QR into OneWorld - its on.

Dunno about EY but certainly there is room in the alliance for both.

Can their overweight 788s do DOH-ORD? Thats got to be a 14 or 15 hour flight.

This will be popular for travelers headed to SE Asia.

Unfortunately, will make things more difficult for struggling AI and give EY a challenge.

About time! They opened a sales office in the John Hancock Center almost four years ago and I figured service was right around the corner. Good to see things actually starting up.

So the new-DOH airport gets exercised?  

Exciting news. I'm sad it isn't a 787 route.   IMHO, this would be an excellent 787 starter route...

Quoting mogandoCI (Reply 2):

IMHO, QR is the better choice for an alliance of the mid-east carriers. EK is an 800 pound gorilla, so why wants to help feed it? EY just doesn't yet have the network QR does with the potential connection times.

So why isn't EK on the route?   

As the A380 wing crack issue is resolved, this could be an opportunity for EK... Not for an A380 to ORD. Not initially. But to free up a 77W or 77L.

AI does enough to make it difficult on themselves. I suspect EK will also join the market and that will "challenge" EY tremendously.

If the route is to be a 77W that seems like a lot of economy seats for the route. I wonder where QR will be sending their 787s if not on these NA routes.

How many more 77Ws do they have to take delivery of? Will this aircraft allocation be a new build or will it be due to a network shuffle?

QF ended their relationship with EY years ago, QF wasn't willing to give EY full access to its frequent flyer program. No VA and EY have a full JV going. There are several media reports of QR and QF now looking at a copy of the VA/EY JV. There are also multiple articles regarding a QF EK alliance, I think QF and QR would be a much better fit, would be fantastic to see QR in oneworld.

Congratulations to QR and Chicago for another new airline starting service. Having a look online based on the arrival time of the QR flight into DOH, it offers pretty decent connections onwards to India (3-4 hrs) but I'm very curious as to what the return time to Chicago is. Can't find anything online and it seems that it isnt loaded into GDS.

Does anyone know the flight details of this new route?

I'm 100% sure ORD and DTW is in the next tranche list for EK. Am amazed they dont fly there yet.

Boston has been rumored to be first on the list, but it is of course possible the EK retaliates and announces ORD for March, as EK did when EY announced IAD.

I understood that Qatar had Boston on their 'short list,' but wasn't aware Emirates did.

In any event, since ORD will be served using a 773, that means one of the first 787s can be tabbed for Boston. BOS couldn't fill anything bigger than that anyway, and probably not even daily. My guess would be 3x or 4x per week.
