Lets not forget Australia's population is relatively small, and with virtually all major Asian airlines including the big ME3 (soon to be ME4) fly to Australia; QF is forced to be a second tier international carrier.

QF left BA hanging out in the cold and cut off its partnership in favor of EK. That leaves BA to be QR's baby to play with. and BA is in a much better financial, geographical position to be partners with--except one thing, SLOTS at Heathrow.

BA needs a nonstop flight from LHR to DOH (instead of via BA), on which BA will continue to SYD, and another flight to BNE.

I would bet you anything THIS is what is going to happen. QR already said it wants to jump into bed with BA. Willie Walsh, here we come!
This is true, but Australians travel a lot! For a population of just 22m, its impressive how much they travel around the world. In comparison, a similar country like Canada, with a population of 35m, has much fewer passengers on international flights. I think Canada's protectionist policies, and high taxes is the reason for this.

Where did you hear that? Do you think EK flies empty planes to every destination? What are you basing your claim on?

Agree, but this isn't the case and the only other solution would be once QF take the plundge and order the B787's (BIG IF) and add BNE, ADL,PER to connect passengers onto the LHR services (If any passenger's plan on travelling to the UK)

Yeah that seems like a good solution. Maybe they don't even need to send 2 A380's on the DXB to LHR leg. Perhaps 1 A380 a day can be enough.

Or maybe the fact that Canadians fly mostly within the Americas (north and south) itself while Australians don't get that luxury being their own continent far removed from the rest of the world.

Yeah for most Canadians, international travel mainly involves escaping the winter weather by flying to some warm tropical beach resort in either Cuba, Jamaica, Dominican Republic, Mexico, or Costa Rica.

I think Australians are much more adventurous based on my experience.

I also think Australians like to keep close ties with the UK unlike most Canadians.

Airport is large, but not enough shops. The food choice is quite limited, and no lounge yet for priority pass members.

My wife flew through this airport at the end of May this year. She took a few videos to showcase it. She also apologises for the shaky cam due to having luggage with her.

from what i've seen, and heard, the new expansion is going to be like a T junction at the north node and not Y

this is the old design :


this is how the new one looks like but with smaller Y and Longer T

If anything, wouldn't that change effectively lower the number of stands? How would it benefit at all?

I was about to ask the same. The design appears to immediately lose 4 remote gates & not to mention the wasted floor space with the Y section partially constructed.

you lose 4 but it is actually adding more I think it will be 20+ extra gates. the drawing up there isn't as accurate as I wanted to be.

Any body have any good ramp pics of planes? The T version is not in any master plans for DOH unless they updated the master plan. They plan on building another terminal on the west side of the west runway when the need arises for it.

Qatar’s HIA expansion continues with $76m plan to add new taxiways

http://dohanews.co/qatars-hia-expans...-new-taxiways/

Quote:
Aircraft at Hamad International Airport (HIA) will have more room to maneuver around the facility in the coming years once a new project to add additional taxiways is completed, the New Doha International Airport Steering Committee has said.

In a statement yesterday, the committee announced that it had awarded a QR277 million (US$76.11 million) contract to Consolidated Engineering Construction Co. to reclaim land to build the taxiways on the northwest tip of the property.
