    Where are these figures coming from? Is it access to the seat map or the booking system?

    First divert this morning due to fog. Diverted to BHX hopefully just to wait it out.

    We won't really know until the CAA figures are out. From what I've read elsewhere some of the loads have bad but some have been ok.

    Some very odd movements on the Qatar schedule/booking system currently.
    I first looked at the website timetable which is only showing 5x weekly CWL-DOH as of the beginning of November (Mo, Tu, Th, Fr, Sa) up to the end of March. (Nothing bookable after that point). Wasn't this route supposed to be daily after mid-June?
    Then I decided to look for some test-bookings on the Qatar website and I can only seem to book direct flights from CWL-DOH 3x weekly (We, Fr, Sa) from now until 18th June, and then 4x weekly (Mo, We, Fr, Sa) onwards through the Summer until November.
    From the 29th October it seems to go 3x weekly (Mo, Fr, Sa) through the Winter...
    On the days where it's not going direct it is giving me the option of going via EDI with flybe.

    Has anyone any insight into whats going on? If this is the case that the flights have been cut then my trip to Oz in November to and from CWL on a Thursday is going to be royally screwed...

    Interesting, have you logged in to check your booking?

    Failing that, Jerry to the rescue?

    GDS shows the same - looks like they are pulling lots of the frequencies.

    I think it's been at 5 weekly for winter for a while now. It's supposed to be daily for the summer then 5 weekly at the winter.

    Yep just had a look and it looks like it'll be 4 weekly from mid June and 3 weekly up until then. Pretty embarrassing for the airport as i don't think they knew in advance especially after all the fanfare of the launch and the airport doesn't need the negativity as it has a lot of detractors who'll no doubt use this against it.
