We typically use more fuel going around weather en route than we do going around the UAE.
That doesn't surprise me at all, listening to QatarRadio 121.5 ...

I beg to differ UAL. They have a strong economy. It's highly likely that they will sort out the issues soon.

Was he at the correct level and in contact with ATC? They're funny about that out that way.

I remember seeing a yield study of middle eastern routes. The local traffic had dramatically better profitability than say connecting long haul traffic. Cutting off everyone local bar the Iranians, who I cannot imagine make up the biggest premium cabin market, would not strike me as great for Qatar.

Gents, careful what you post and what you link.

It is not Lala Land anymore.

500k fine and 15 years jail might appear.

The chance of Qatar agreeing to those demands seems remote.
More worrying for those presently in the gulf is h3dxb's legitimate warning.

Looks like a temporary home for some of Qatar Airways planes might have been 'conveniently' found.............
Apparently BA wants nine of them flying to cover the upcoming two week mixed fleet cabin crew strike.
So instead of being banned flying into your neighbours airspace, you can now spend a fortnight on scab labour duties.
Nice!!

gearleaver et al.

Always has been and always will be a FAMILY ISSUE.

Ask anyone who has lived in the ME for any length of time.

The "United Arab Emirates" and the GCC are a joke and a laughing stock. Can't agree on Rail Link. One Currency etc etc etc .

Why? My family wants it it in Saudi, mine wants it in Dubai and mine wan..ts it in Abu Dhabi. Always has been and will be a willy waving exercise by those suffering small man syndrome.

It was once said of a GCC summit meeting that if you put a clock in the middle of the conference table they wouldn't agree the time.

I'm pretty sure BA asked everyone in UK before QR ... but it's summer and it's busy like every summer!
