QR 728 (PHL-DOH) flew to ATH yesterday?

Mon Jun 03, 2019 4:33 pm

Does anyone know why yesterday's (June 2nd) QR PHL-DOH flight went PHL-ATH-DOH? Looks like it was scheduled via ATH vs diverting.

According to Flight Radar it was a diversion. Can't find any reports to why at the moment

I see that the flight is now a 777. Does that have the QSuites ? I was on it last Monday and it was still the 350.

Crew issue. They were short an FO leaving PHL and had to make a planned stop in ATH to change tech crew.

No QSuites unfortunately but will go back to a 350-900 in September with QSuites

An interesting point.
QR's ATH-DOH routing goes over Syria for the last couple of months. This particular flight took the long route through Turkey before turning south. Could it be because with the original departure out of US, there are concerns about flying american pax over syria? Does anyone know if there's a DoT directive about this?

Great news that the return of the 350 in September will be with the QSuites and not keep the present 777. I recently flew a 777 with QSuites and have to say I felt they were tight. I flew the 350 and I really like their seats, and better then the QSuites

Yea the 777 started two days ago on June 1st. Not sure why they swapped but guess can be positive for capacity reasons. Qatar first planned on starting 350 Qsuites in June then kept pushing it back so now it’s suppose to start sept 1st.
