Noch am Morgen war es ein absoluter Knall. Qatar Airways hat die Überlugsrechte bei vielen Nachbarstaaten verloren und gleichzeitig fliegen viele Airlines Doha nicht mehr an …

Wie ein Paukenschlag haben heute am Morgen Saudi Arabien, Bahrain, VAE, Ägypten, Jemen und die Malediven die diplomatischen Beziehungen zu Qatar eingestellt. Die Überflugsrechte für Qatar Airways wurden entzogen (scheinbar Malediven derzeit noch nicht) und die Airlines dieser Länder haben angekündigt die Verbindungen nach Doha einzustellen.

Mein erster Beitrag dazu (und wahrscheinlich leider noch nicht der letzte Eintrag dazu): Qatar wird ausgehungert! Keine Flüge von Etihad! Luftraum für Qatar Airways gesperrt!

Wie schaut die derzeitige Situation aus?
