Now that Qatar airways are getting their 787 aircraft, they now are setting up routes for them.
We all know they’ve been doing shuttle runs from Doha to Dubai, and have today launched Doha to London Heathrow today with one rotation due to operate as a Boeing 787.
The next rotation has been announced, which will stretch the legs of the 787 from Doha to Perth – and help it live up to its “Thin and Long” idea.

This will make Qatar Airways the first operator to bring the 787 to Australia, and will be airline’s second intercontinental 787 route.
Qatar Airways have three Boeing 787-8 aircraft in their fleet, with more to come as 2013 progresses.
