Qatar Airways moves launch of flights to Azerbaijan and Georgia to 1 February 2012

Qatar Airways is switching the launch date of its new flights to Azerbaijan and Georgia to the New Year due to operational reasons. Originally slated to start operations on November 30, the new services to the capital cities of Baku and Tbilisi respectively, will now begin on February 1.
"With capacity increases planned on many routes, we face constraints on aircraft availability, therefore decided to revise these two route launch dates and move them to February.

We regret the inconvenience caused, but all steps are being taken to look after passengers already holding bookings," said Qatar Airways Chief Executive Officer Akbar Al Baker.

Passengers with tickets and confirmed bookings to and from both cities will be rebooked on alternative flights to their final destination.

Good evening!
Qatar Airways will fly when in Almaty (Kazakhstan)? To us from countries of the Gulf only fly Etihad and Air Arabia. I think many people would have flew in transit through Doha. Meanwhile, Etihad saves us, I only fly them.

Etihad announces winner of 'Escape to Maldives' competition

23 Aug 2011

Etihad Airways has announced Lynette Dobson from Abingdon, England, as the lucky winner of two tickets to the Maldives through its 'Escape to Paradise' Facebook competition.



Over 8,000 people across the globe entered the competition, which used a Facebook quiz to find out how romantic the respondents were. The competition posed situations such as "You're watching a beautiful sunset, you say" a) "The sun's getting tired and so am I" b) "There’s not much to do around here" c) "If beauty was a drop of water, then you’d be the ocean" d) "I have sand in my pants" or e) "You look great in this light". The application then determined where users lay on the romantic scale of 'Cold Fish' to 'Sizzling Hot'.



Winner Lynette, whose name was picked at random, was deemed to be a 'sizzling hot' romantic, and perfectly suited to a trip to the Maldives.



The stunning Maldive islands, located 700 kilometres southwest of Sri Lanka in the Indian Ocean, have long represented a romantic dream for holidaymakers and travellers across the world.



Etihad will launch daily flights to Mal in the Maldives on November 1, and following her win Lynette will be on the inaugural flight. Despite the remote location, these new flights mean it is easier than ever to plan a trip of a lifetime and discover this idyllic destination.



"I can't believe I've been lucky enough to win this prize," said Lynette. "I've always wanted to go to the Maldives and Etihad have made my dream come true."



James Hogan, Etihad Airways Chief Executive Officer, said: "We are very excited to be launching flights to the Maldives later this year, and to be opening up this exclusive destination to more guests than ever. It is with great pleasure that we invite Lynette to visit these stunning islands, and sample our award winning airline, in celebration."

I missed my flight earlier today because in DXB (at least) they close the check-in counter exactly one hour before the flight.

WTF??????

Not only no other Airline does that, but the flight to Doha itself is also one hour long.

Its frustrating, but all airlines close the check-in counter an hour before the flight! Didn't they put u in the next flight. There are 11 flights a day to DOH.

The problem with QR is the lack of aircraft. As soon as they get more A320s they will fly to Almaty. They will fly to Baku and Tblisi in February 1 which is in Central Asia. I assume Almaty, your next!
