QR913 on Monday 30th flies BNE-DOH according to flight options on QR website and expert flyer seat map is loaded.
Obviously Covid-19 related and may be of use to some people.
We’ve family stranded by emirates cancellation and qatar are about the only remaking option for flights back to UK.

Seems sort of weird the Australian government would rather allow Qatar Airways to have a near-monopolistic share of routes into Australia during this crisis, instead of supporting either QF or VA with semi-subsidised flights to bring Australians home. I guess at the end of the crisis the old rules will take effect again, but by then who knows what the local aviation sector will look like.

Playing devil’s advocate: QR has the route structure in place. QFI is not operating ATM ☹

You will see on the QR adverts on Facebook, the apparent theme is the expensive pricing of these flights and the dislike of this by those who are commenting

Booked a couple of mates and colleagues ex London on QR $1785.00 one way back to OZ. The cost of flights getting them to LHR, that’s where the price gouging is happening.

My brother and his partner flew last night. $6500 for the two of them BNE-DOH-LHR.
Its certainly expensive, but the flight out from DOH flew mostly empty and due to the complete lack of flights there's huge demand for seats ex-AU. They could have saved a couple of thousand $$ by booking a flight for early next week, but the situation everywhere is changing so fast its risky.
Last night from BNE was the only flight running and was sold out. Big queues in departures as all pax had to be interviewed by police/border force prior to check in.
