Boeing has delivered the 50th Boeing 777 as part of an order placed in 2006 when Qatar Airways’ network was just barely over 50 destinations. Over a decade later with the delivery of the 50th 777, the total fleet number of aircraft currently in service for the Doha-based carrier has risen to over 180 and the Boeing 777 has become a mainstay of the long-haul fleet and remains an essential part of the route expansion strategy by Qatar Airways. Per Ray Conner, president and CEO, Boeing Commercial Airplanes, Qatar and Boeing have developed and enjoyed an enduring/mutually beneficial relationship since the beginning of the first 777 order. Currently the airline is a major 777X customer having ordered 60 aircrafts and operates the 777-300ER as well as the Long-Range (LR) variant of the 777-200.
Group Chief Executive, His Excellency, Mr. Akbar Al Baker has lauded about how comfortable and spacious the cabins of the Boeing 777 are and that view is backed up by overwhelming support by the crew and passenger testimonials. Qatar is in the process of transitioning from a 9-abreast layout to 10 abreast in its 777-300ERs economy class cabins and plans to increase the seat number from the current 316 to the upgraded 388 seating layout variant. Qatar Airways operates to a host of destinations using the 777 as their primary aircraft.
The carrier operates in airports all across major cities in the United States such as Los Angeles, New York JFK, Miami, Dallas, Washington Dulles, Houston and Chicago to name a few. Qatar Airways forthcoming service to Atlanta will be served with a 777-300ER beginning on June 2nd. Qatar Airways is a state-owned flag carrier holding base in the Qatar Airways Tower in Doha. The airline is a hub-and-spoke network operating in over 150 international destination across the seven continents. Currently employing over 40,000 employees the carrier has been a member of the Oneworld alliance since 2013 and is also the first Gulf carrier to sign with the airline alliances.
Established on November 22nd of 1993, the airline started with 75 employees and consisted of only two Airbus A320s at the time. The airline has been the subject of controversy regarding harsh treatment of their employees and unprecedented scrutiny in the workplace with allegations that an employee could be fire if she becomes pregnant.
