Qatar Airways has officially revealed on the GDS that it will be undertaking few capacity and frequency changes for the Summer 2010 IATA season. The main highlights are as follows:
CAN - capacity increased from 5 weekly A 332s to 5 weekly B 773ERs.
BEY - frequencies increased from double to triple daily from June 16th.
COK - frequencies increased from daily to 9 weekly nonstop flights using an A 321 from Sept 1st.
LXR - frequencies increased from 4 weekly to daily nonstop flights using an A 320 from Sept 1st.
Is there that much demand for QR to send a 335 seater B 77W to CAN? The only reason one can think of is because of the higher cargo payload that the B 77W can carry in its belly versus an A 333.
