Qatar Airways plans to deploy this aircraft on the short haul route to nearby Dubai before it starts flying it to London Heathrow.
Although we could already see Qatar’s first Boeing 787 last summer at the Farnborough Air Show, where our editors could also get on board to see how the interiors look like!
It was also at Farnborough that we could ee this amazing air-to-air infra-red footage of Qatar Airway’s Dremaliner in flight.
However, the delivery of the first Dreamliner has been a contentious issue…
The start of the London services has actually suffered a considerable delay, which has strained the relations between Qatar Airways and Boeing. Qatar’s CEO, Akbar Al Baker, even mentioned the possibility of the carrier switching to Airbus’ A330 instead.
Now, with the first Dreamliner delivered, Al Baker has said that Qatar Airways, that has firm orders and options for up to 60 Dreamliners, might consider the stretched 787-10X variant.
In any case, we have compiled, a whole special feature about Qatar Airways’ Dreamliner with a full timeline, news, images and an interactive cutaway…!
And you can check also our Boeing 787 Handover Gallery!
Qatar Airways gets, at last, its first Dreamliner
