[SIZE="5"]Here are some images from some other video that was on QATAR TV. These images are real, and not artistic renditions. Took me forever, but I hope they are clear! =) Some of the pics are multiples as well.

This is great news for Doha & QR. Does anyone know if it will keep the same code? Is it still slated to open next year?

Its definately come a long way from the shed I arrived into for the very first time back in 2002 when I joined QR! Im still amazed however at why they reclaimed all that land from the sea with runways which will bring aircraft screeching over the Pearl and north Doha residential areas when there is so much vast empty desert just minutes outside the city?!?!?!?!

Ah good aul Casper, more money then sense and an atmosphere of fear surrounding him so no one will ever question him!

Is it me or does the terminal give a cramped feel when compared to BKK, HKG, SIN...

when fully complete the airport will be able to service six Airbus A380’s simultaneously...???

I'm baffled by the photographers comments...

QR have 10 x A380's on order with 1 x option. It means when the final phase of the airport is complete ''beyond 2015'' 6 of their A380's will be able to be at the airport at their own gate at a time.

Long overdue for a wonderful airline like QR that has so desperately needed a fitting home for so long.

For QR's sake, I do hope that massive expansion doesn't push them the same way as EK, which for many has lost its polish in the last decade.

Looks very nice! A welcome change from the old DOH airport that - unless you are shelling out the huge $$$$ for the premium seats - is woefully inadequate for one of the world's best airlines. Can't wait to see some trip reports!

Cheers...6 bays certainly doesn't sound much to me considering the size of the new airport...
