Hi Guys, I'm booked on a flight from Perth to Munich with Qatar airways in a few weeks, of which the Doha - Munich leg which was supposed to be on the A350. I was disappointed to see that the plane has been changed to a 777-300ER only for the flight on the day I'm booked. Naturally I'm a little disappointed as did choose the flight partly to fly on the A350 and was wondering what reason Qatar would have for changing the plane just for this particular day?

As said, there could be limitless reasons as to why the aircraft has been swapped. I would bet on either there being maintenance scheduled for that day, or this particular day requiring more seats.
