Quoting 1stfl94 (Thread starter):
Qatar

QR does (or did?) already operate a 345 for the government. I think that their first 346 has been delivered.

Correct, there is currently one A346 for QR around at TLS  Smile



The A340's will fly on one of the two previous flights into LHR, and the new flight will be upgraded to the 346 5x a week  Smile (So 12x weekly 346)

They will be used on routes to Europe (LHR), United States (JFK), Far East and Australia (SYD/MEL)

The QR A340's will also feature a first class lounge on-board  Smile


As of the EY A340's, there is currently one still in TLS awaiting cabin configuration  Smile

Has anybody actually heard of a delivery date for the A346s for EY?? Apparantly they are getting their A345s much sooner.

The A345s will be here in mid-June, and the A346s sometime in 2007.
