Qatar Virtual Presents: A340: A Fond Farewell | @ OTHH 181200ZMAY19

Event description:

On May 1st 2019, Qatar Airways scheduled their last A340 flight from Doha to Bangkok. This signals towards the end of an era of 4-engined aircraft, with Qatar Airways phasing out all 4-engined aircraft in only a few years, in favor of more efficient twin-engined aircraft such as the A350, 787 and 777X. However, fear not. We will be taking the A340 on one final flight, returning the A340 back to Toulouse, France, where Airbus is headquartered. After that, the A340 will only be available to Oryx Commanders as part of the Qatar Heritage Programme

Nice thread!
Just a question, if I were to join Qatar virtual would the a340 not be part of the VA anymore? Or will the IF routes still be flown with the a340?

We will still use the A340. The A340 flies to four different routes; to Barcelona, Bangkok, Colombo and Kuala Lumpur. It is unlocked at the Commander rank.

Thanks! There are only several routes that the A340 operated within Qatar Airways, to Colombo, Kuala Lumpur, Barcelona and Bangkok. The Colombo and Bangkok routes are now operated by an A330, the route to Kuala Lumpur by a 777 and the route to Barcelona [soon to be] by an A350. You can still unlock the A340 as part of the Qatar Heritage Programme, when you reach the rank of Commander within the VA.

Roger. Thanks for letting us know.

@Callum_Marsh just to let you know, we have changed the block fuel to 89,058kg.

Man, this sure is sad. I’m living in Kuala Lumpur and often see Qatar A340s landing there. Now, they use Qatar B777-300ERs. You guys should do the same! :)

It has been changed to B77W in the VA. It’s just you’re still able to fly there with an A340 through our Qatar Heritage Programme when you reach the rank of Commander. ;)
