• Totally agree @oliverfreeman , really looking forward to seeing the 777 back in Perth. She is a beautiful aircraft to watch! I am actually doing a work trip to the states in October with QR and when I read this I got excited that I will get to try the QSuites, QSuites all the way to Washington DC...

  • I think it's more that Qatar have maxed out their available slots to Australia as to why they won't swap out Melbourne A380. Also the Perth swap out is only to manage the maintenance of the big bird until late 2019, early 2020. The capacity is there on the PER-DOH route to be an A380.

  • Toooo bloody exciting this is!!
