Qatar Airways has officially confirmed that due to the on going strikes at Boeing, it will be once again delaying its planned launch of nonstop Doha-Houston flights from mid December 2008 to Feb 15th 2009. From that date onwards, it will launch DOH-IAH with a daily frequency and not 3 times a week as was the plan if the route was launched in mid Decmber 08.
QR also confirmed that it will be increasing its presence on the Doha-Khartoum (Sudan) route from this winter onwards by flying it double daily nonstop using A 320's. This means increase of 5 weekly flights as currently the carrier flies this sector 9 times a week.
