See http://twitter.com/GoldboxATL/status/738141778155429888 for a live picture of the gate house. Looks to be about 70 people waiting for QR756 back to DOH.

But the Twitter account you linked, the self proclaimed "Delta Junkie" seems to posting for the sole reason of bashing QR.. I would take it with a big grain of salt.
|Quoting ZKOJQ (Reply 35):|
What an incredibly immature tweeter. He clearly has an axe to grind against Qatar, so I its not as if they can be considered an unbiased source.
|Quoting DTWLAX (Reply 54):|
Some posters mentioned that the only A380 gate at ATL is in Concourse E. So what is this guy doing at Gate F14? Did the plane depart from Concourse F? Am I missing something?
|Quoting Carfield (Reply 42):|
I was on the JetBlue Daytona Beach inaugural, and both flights were less than 50% full.
|Quoting dubaiamman243 (Reply 17):|
elta has an A320 at the only A380 gate on E at @ATLairport, blocking @qatarairways
|Quoting Qatara340 (Reply 60):|
Hope to be onboard one of these flights next Jan-- not sure if I would allowed to since Muslims might be banned if the Trump wins the presidency.
|Quoting Qatara340 (Reply 60):|
Congrats to the world's best airline for the successful launch of the flights to ATL! Nice to know both flights were FULL flights
|Quoting northwestEWR (Reply 10):|
Absolutely hilarious. They operate the first flight with the A380 to rub DL's face in it and then get denied the only gate by DL. Backfire!
|Quoting gatibosgru (Reply 53):|
Guess we have a source from someone actually on the flight that it really doesn't have less than 100 people in it.
|Quoting ptcflyer (Reply 67):|
On final now into Doha. Best flight I have ever experienced. Staff in the air is superb. Look forward to Doha business lounge and flight to Kathmandu.
|Quoting Dalmd88 (Reply 71):|
Yes it does. The A380 wingspan is about 50 ft more than a 777-300.
|Quoting Polot (Reply 72):|
Meaningless for diversions though. As long as you have a place to park the plane where it won't seriously block/disrupt operations then most airports can handle a diverted A380. It doesn't have to be at a gate
|Quoting dlflynhayn (Reply 68):|
Yeah pretty accurate because he went around and counted every coach seat please!! lets see some facts on paper not saying it wasn't full because fares were probably VERY low and QR is not in the game to make a profit who knows why there in the airline industry in the first place conspiracy lol..
|Quoting at777 (Reply 41):|
If it does change to an A380, is CLT A380 ready?
I ask because ATL has severe storms at times during the summer months and the diversion airport a lot of the times is CLT for some European arrivals. If CLT isn't ready for the A380, what airport would be in this case?
