The A319 that Qatar uses on scheduled flights is not a CJ it is an A319LR.
Qatar has two CJA and CJB. They are equipped to have 6 ACTs but are only fitted with one. Even with only one, the baggage for 110 pax can nearly fill the hold. You can't fly long distance, and carry baggage.
DOH-ARN is about 2500nm and they need the ACT for the Northbound sector most of the time.

Thanks for the answers! I wasn't aware there was a difference between an A319LR and the ACJ! I assumed they were one and the same, with different names: "A319LR" used by commercial airlines for scheduled flights, ACJ more like a private jet.
So, does anyone know what plane and what kind of configuration Lufthansa/Privaitair uses for that very long Frankfurt-Pune flight, which is 3,600 nm?
