Any Airline Interested In Flying To Qatar?

Sat Jan 10, 2004 9:16 pm

Dosent seem like it, aviation there has always been dominated by regional carriers from the middle east and south Asia with one or two African/Arab airlnes also veturing in, the three far Eastern carriers they have gained i.e Malaysia Airlines, Garuda Indonesia and Philippine Airlines all code share on Qatar Airways flights, besides that they have KLM, British Airways and Air France Cargo.

Tiny Bahrain on the other hand at one time had Qantas, Philippines, Singapore Airlines, Korean Air and Royal Brunei from the East all operating there with their own aircraft at present they have Cathay Pacific and Thai.

BTW which European airlines used to serve Bahrain? at present they have KLM and British Airways.

I'm working in Doha for a few months, so this is something of interest to me. I have spent many hours trying to spot & photograph at Doha (not easy), and I have never seen much other than QR - I think most of the more interesting stuff arrives & leaves after dark.

So far, other than QR, all I've seen is:
Gulf Air A320s & B767s
Emirates A330s & B777s
One Yemania B737 a week, should be an A310 as well
Occasional Iran Air A320 or B727

I know plenty of other airlines operate here, but I think most of it arrives in the dark  Sad
