Qatar Airways took delivery of the first of its 60 Dreamliners earlier this month with the second arriving over the weekend. Both aircraft are currently operating commercial flights on intra-Gulf routes to familiarise operating crew with the aeroplane before entering the long-haul market. Three more aircraft are expected to join the fleet before the year end.

Qatar Airways Dreamliners have 254 seats. Business Class is configured 1–2–1 with 22 seats, while Economy has 232 seats in a very tight 3–3–3 layout.
