No its not EK
Well that only really leaves Etihad and Qatar..... wasnt there something a few months back about Etihad going to a 777? My money would be on them.
No not Etihad either though it is the other ME3 carrier. Though I have my doubts of this rumour coming true after all this is QR we are talking about who chop and change their minds I also think their is some merit behind it. Firstly if EY does upgrade PER to 77W I imagine QR will want to defend their share in the market and secondly if the bilateral stays as is, the only way is increasing existing routes. QR still has 3 more A388's to be delivered as well.
So let's say QR are going to upgauge to the A380... what gate is it going to use? The EK A380 is on the ground at the same time, unless I'm missing that PER now has two A380 capable gates?
