Dont know whether I've missed this news but has anyone heard about Qatar starting operations to Birmingham at all? The following is taken from the ABTN website:- "BIRMINGHAM is to be linked non-stop to Doha from 26 March with Qatar Airways offering a four times per week service. Doha, capital of the Gulf area state of Qatar, is a major hub for much of the Middle East and for many destinations on the Indian subcontinent. Announcing the new route the airline’s chief executive officer Akbar Al Baker said, “All our operations covering Gatwick, Heathrow and Manchester are performing extremely well. Birmingham is a natural progression for us, the UK a major market.” He also confirmed that the Manchester flights would go from four to five from 11 February and daily at the beginning of the summer season 26 March. Airbus A330 aircraft, in a two-class configuration as used for Manchester, will also service Birmingham"
