QR – Qatar Airways still wants to bring the 787 ‘Dreamliner’ on the debut route to Perth. As of posting, there is still no confirmed date of return for the crippled 787 Dreamliner which were grounded around the world since late-January.
An inventory search we did earlier this month, states that the 15th of May is booked in as the start date for the 787 aircraft to operate the QR75/76 rotation to London.
Qatar Airways wanted this service to include the 787 from the 1st of February and were looking at connecting London with a “787 aircraft all the way!” Despite a tight, 1hour 20min connection time, Australian Business Traveller when contacting a spokesman said this –
“Doha is very efficient in moving passengers from aircraft to aircraft and the passengers will make the connection easily” he said, adding a little positive spin that “the best thing about it (is) there’s no waiting around.”
Well, it’s just a case of wait ‘n’ see. This post will be updated in due course as to when it will begin.
