QR 787-9 Routes?

Wed May 13, 2020 7:11 am

Sorry if this has been answered elsewhere

Has there been an announcement yet of where Qatar plans on flying their 787-9? They released what the changes they made with the Q-Suites "2.0" which was just:
-Reduce Weight 20%
-Reduce Height of door
-Eliminate for a 4-person communal area in center seats

But I have not found any route announcements. Does anyone know or hypothesize where she'll go?

Their route will be PAE-DOH-VCV-DOH, so they can show off its fuel efficiency as much as possible :D . Jokes aside, there have been no announcements (to my knowledge, and after a 10 minute search) on their routes. Although even if there were, it would likely be inaccurate due to the COVID-19 situation. Right now, all of them are stored at the old Doha airport.

I must have missed it, what is the story behind these? Why did they go direct to storage (pre-COVID19 at that)? Are the seat manufacturers behind schedule again?

Three good articles on the process of the delay/delivery plus a bonus pic from me when it arrived at VCV :) :
