Some of you may recall from a few months back that Qatar Airways and Iranian officials announced plans for the airline to begin operating domestic flights in Iran as part of a massive expansion into Iran. There was a fair amount of press coverage of the announcement at the time, along with a couple of anet threads, but the whole thing appears to have since died away:

Looking at Qatar Airways latest expansion plans for 2012 Iran is ominously absent

Does anyone know the actual status of Qatar's supposed Iran expansion? I'm now wondering whether the whole thing was just a PR stunt.
