Qatar Airways

Qatar Airways has revealed that effective January 2nd 2009, it will be increasing capacity on its JED-Jeddah bound flights by flying the route daily with a Boeing 777-200LR. This will therefore result in the carrier offering a "same plane" daily service from IAH-Houston via DOH to JED.

The flight timings are as follows :

QR 078 Dep IAH 1215 Arr DOH 1210+1
QR 766 Dep DOH 1340+1 Arr JED 1610+1
QR 767 Dep JED 1740 Arr DOH 1955
QR 077 Dep DOH 0120+1 Arr IAH 0915+1

This is viewed as an excellent move by QR offering a same plane service on this very important high yielding oil/energy route which people think will result in many business class passengers flying them rather than its competitors. FYI, QR is involved in LH and UAL's respective frequent flier programs therefore making them an attractive option for the corporate traveller who are members of these 2 airline's frequent flier programs.
