Emirates Substitute A332 With A343 On DXB-DOH?

Fri Jun 04, 2004 5:09 am

Today I watched one of Emirates' new A343s take off at DOH and was pretty surprised to see they were using it on this very short half an hour hop. As far as I know, the A332 and A343 have almost the same capacity, so why do they need to operate it instead? Any information about this would be appreciated. Also, is this now the aircraft operated on the route or is it just maybe a replacement for that one flight?
