There are some apparently credible social media claims being circulated that Qatar Airways has cancelled the 1 February inauguration of 787 Dreamliner flights between Doha and Perth.

This was due to become Australia’s first scheduled 787 service.

Qatar also cancelled yesterday’s 787 rotation between Doha and London, and the status of other of its Dreamliner flights is confused at this time.

    Dreamliner = Disaster

    Already, 50% of the 787 Dreamliner fleet is grounded.

    Why is Qatar Airlines continuing to fly them at all?

    The 787 Dreamliner has turned into the new DC-10… an airliner which the public does not want to fly, as it is perceived as being unsafe.

    If Qatar has any sort of incident with its 787, such as an unscheduled landing, people are going to question Qatar’s safety standards for continuing to fly an airliner that others have grounded.
