PHOTOS: Designed to impress, Qatar Airways’ Boeing 787 Dreamliner pleases

LE BOURGET, PARIS – Qatar Airways made history when it became one of the first airlines to operate the Boeing 787 Dreamliner in November 2012. It’s one of their most popular planes with passengers flying from their hub in Doha to points in Europe and Asia.

The planes do not have crew rests, a rare distinction for Boeing 787s, which are capable of flying ultra-long haul missions. Qatar deploys the aircraft on much shorter flights where crew augmentation is not necessary.

Revenue seats are vacated for crew if a rest area is needed.
