Does anyone know if BD will be interested in codesharing with QR to DOH? QR and BD currently have a feeder and frequent flyer program agreements.

Lekky-Man,

I heard those rumours too and also a Scottish destination as well. I heard the rumours from some QR staff (low-level) and the internet. BHX will probably happen in the future (2004 and above) because of QR's new strategy to develop secondary and niche UK and European markets.

I take it the Scottish destination would be Glasgow then?

QatarAirways,

Are QR & BD really in feeder and FQTV agreements with eachother? I know QR codeshare with LH, but I didn't think they were involved with BD......

Is this a recent thing?

Gkirk,

That's what I heard but I have to state that they are ONLY rumours.

UK_Dispatcher,

QR and BD don't codeshare but they are in a cooperation agreement. Check out: http://www.qatarairways.com/AboutUs/partners.html and a quote from QR's FF website
