Anyone planning to buy tickets on QR need to wait.. this will disrupt flights especially if the flight will go to or overfly these countries..

UAE just announced it.. big flight disruptions to DXB, AUH, DWC, SHJ expected

Gulf tensions - Bahrain/Egypt/Saudi & UAE cut ties with Qatar
 
Just hitting my bloomberg now... not sure if this is the correct area to post this

Bahrain closing off its airspace, kicking out Qataris domiciled in Bahrain etc... Seems like it will escalate quite quickly.

If the other states follow suit will this affect Qatar routing and services?? best to avoid the airline for the near term?

Thoughts appreciated.

Just spoke to QR call center, they know nothing about this yet.. they are yet to react to the news

I can't find any news on this - what is the background on the reason for this?

beduin Jun 4, 17 9:13 pm

Qatar support for brotherhoods, leaked war plans to pro-iranian houthies.. they are of course kicked out from the coalition too

I can imagine that it's really bad for ex-CAI runs..

I'm due to return from Moscow to UAE later in the week. Can you guys advise what might happen me on this one? A reroute with BA possible?
