QR Upgrades ZRH

Thu Apr 07, 2005 5:25 pm

Finally Qatar Airways will introduce widebody aircraft on its DOH-ZRH-DOH route. Starting MAy 1, 2005 the Friday/Sunday flights will be operated by an Airbus A300-600R. Wednesday/Thursday will be operated by the A319LR. I wonder why they dont operate one of their A330's to Zurich instead of this old and used A300 with no PTV's in Economy. EK operates with a mix of A345, A330 to ZRH with top IFE system in all classes.

What's your source? All ZRH slots requested by QR are for A319's...

Trust me, slots will not be a problem, ZRH Airport wants/needs the business desperately.

It's not that I don't trust you but QR has requested slots for A300 but just recently changed them back to A319.

Quoting AirMale (Thread starter):

Not only these two. Last Wednesday I saw an EK A 343 in Zurich.
