5th Freedom Flights Within The Gulf Region

Wed Dec 26, 2012 12:40 am

Hi to you all,

I would be interested to know, which airline is offering 5th freedom rights in the Gulf Region, so far I found:

BAH-DOH BA B777
AUH-MCT BA B777
DXB-DOH UA B777

Any other I forgot?

ThanX chris

Great idea !

If I'm not mistaken, KL flies AUH-BAH with an A330

Nice idea!

LX DXB-MCT
SQ DXB-CAI (I know it's stretching it...)

KL also used to do DMM-DOH as part of AMS-DOH, but it now appears that they operate DMM-KWI.

Swiss fly DXB-MCT, A333 I think now or perhaps an A343

Sri Lankan used to fly from KWI to AUH or DHB, but I'm not sure that one still flies.

For KL, add DOH - MCT. LH and IX fly AUH - MCT just like BA. There was a time two years back that KL had an A330, LH an A340 and the BA 777 leaving AUH for MCT within an hour.

LH still flies DOH - BAH ? IX flies it as well.
TK flies BAH - MCT nowadays if I'm not mistaken.

Cheers,
Florian

Buddy of mine who's a trainer on the 777 at BA parks in AUH for a week and checks a different FO or Captain every night on AUH-MCT-AUH, much easier than going all the way to LAD or DEN or MCO just to evaluate and / or train one guy (or gal).

Not on training flights or check rides, but I wonder if they ever hand-fly a whole sector - another plane driver friend told me Ryanair do sometimes, can't remember the specific route, maybe BCN to PMI. Fun times!
fly Saha Air 707s daily from Tehran's downtown Mehrabad to Mashhad, Kish Island and Ahwaz
