a friend of mine flew DOH-SYD few days ago and said there were about 200 pax out of the 517 seats of the A380, he had the whole row to himself!
so i think QR isnt ready yet for the A380, but its definitely growing in a very big pace!
I think TP's model is a bit like TK's so definitely not focused on O&D. I recently flew BCN-BOS via LIS as it was a phenomenal fare - $270 one way with checked bag, free food and free alcoholic drinks and free IFE. They are giving LCC and full-service carriers a run for their money. Flying on A...Jump to post
I lived and worked in Doha for a, blissfully short, while. Doha is, in case you didn't know, about as interesting as watching paint dry. From inside an oven. Asked around, what does one do for a good weekend? 'Get on a plane to Dubai or Bahrain' came the answer. So, that's what I - and many, many, ...Jump to post

i was just looking at Wikipedia and saw that the DXB-DOH route was flown by almost 3 million pax in 2015.
Qatar and UAE are pretty small countries with most of the population being foreign, so i was wondering why is this market is so big? is it because of business ties?VFR? connections?
i dont think this flight suppose to serve connecting pax, its mostly for O&D traffic. they usually offer lower fares than IB(which serves more connecting pax). Air Europa (of which I am not a fan at all) has made quite an effort in the last years to improve their European network in order to be...Jump to post
BOS isn't a hub for Delta - it's more focus city, with most of the flight count to other Delta hubs. Yes, there are SOME Delta flights from BOS to non-Delta-hub airports but those number in the dozens, not the hundreds as at ATL/MSP/DTW. MAD-BOS-XXX might be more effective for a few passengers (and...Jump to post

QR flag route is DOH-LHR and the flagship plane is the A-380/350.
EY flag route is AUH-LHR and the flagship plane is the A-380.
VS flag route is LHR-JFK the flagship plane is the mighty 747!
BOS-TXL should be tried next summer if they make JFK-TXL work, i mean the demand is there, its just that the yields are the problem.Jump to post
accually the big international terminals in both airports, TBIT in LAX and T4 in JFK handle the huge amount of pax pretty well!
but i really think there are more jammed airports such as BOS...
Israeli friend of mine told me that EK/QR/EY make a good profit off Israeli pax, mostly to asia and australia. i cant remember the exact number but about 60,000 israelis fly every year with the ME3. also israeli airline Arkia and QR have an agreement in which Arkia flies to AMM/LCA and QR than flies...Jump to post
Yes, they can be very far behind. AMS would add only a few connections beyond what CDG already offers. RDU-AMS O&D counts? Come on - it couldn't fill a CR2. RDU-LHR has AA and the BA joint venture. That's fare more of a competitive hurdle than faced by RDU-CDG, even if LON is by far the bigger ...Jump to post
Could they make SFO, LAS or LAX to PSP work, even though it is a short flight? What are the competitor prices like? I know Palm Springs was a popular tourist destination but slowed down with the stock market mortgage crisis a few years ago. i dont think LAX would work, its a drivable distance and t...Jump to post
i was checking for flights from MAD to ADD and i have found out that the flight(Ethiopian Air 713) has a 30 minutes connection in MLA, and it continues with the same plane. i checked out and i didnt find any nonstop flights from MLA to ADD, so why are they stopping there? is it a technical stop? or...Jump to post
