Qatar A380 schedule for LHR/CDG

Have they published the A380 flight schedule yet, both for up to March 27/28 and beyond? Would love to fly on this jumbo jet as they may be deactivated again once the A350 engine woes are resolved...

Some discussion of routes has been occurring here:

Rule one on QR: Never plan an itinerary based on the scheduled equipment.

Very true, but that goes for every airline

Ah, but some airlines have extra special capabilities, and for QR the airframe swap has in the past been something it has been infamous for, particularly when it was pushing the limits of its fleet. As it continues to reinstate it's schedule, has a number of A350s grounded because of issues with paint/bodywork, and appears to be pressing the maligned A380s back into service, you should probably expect some unexpected airframe swaps.

Absolutely, some are more stabile than others (guess fleet commonality has a large role to play) - JAL springs to mind! QR may be a bit fluctuating but can never be as bad as TG
