Qatar Airways puts Airbus A350 on Atlanta-Doha route

Qatar Airways has begun flying the wide-body Airbus A350 into Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport, soon after Delta Air Lines put the A350 on its Atlanta-Seoul route.

Qatar operates flights from Atlanta to Doha. When it launched the route in 2016 it brought the super-jumbo Airbus A380 jet for the inaugural flight, but subsequently used the 777 for regular service.

Qatar was the launch customer for the A350 in 2014 and first began flying the jet out of Philadelphia. Its A350-900 has 247 seats in economy class and 36 seats in business class out of Atlanta.
