Qatar Airways is operating its two recently delivered 231-seat Airbus A300-600Rs on its daily service between Doha, Qatar, and London Heathrow, replacing two Boeing 747-100SRs. The airline, which unveiled its new corporate identity with the introduction of the A300s, is operating the ex-Garuda Indonesia Airbuses on five-year leases from Ansett Worldwide Aviation Services. Qatar has also refurbished its three Boeing 727-200 Advs, and recently acquired an ex-US Airways example. The 747s are for sale.
