Qatar Airways will take delivery of its first A380 sometime early in 2014, becoming the 11th operator of the A380. Qatar Airways currently operates a fleet of 117 passenger aircraft, serving 121 destinations around the globe, with an additional 172 aircraft on order, including 10 A380s (with 3 additional purchase options). Qatar Airways’ A380s are expected to seat 517 passengers in a 3 class configuration (8F / 52J / 457Y).
