Qatar Airways currently operates 5 daily flights to London Heathrow from Doha Base. The Boeing 787 Dreamliner is set to enter the Doha - London Heathrow morning flight from 6: 30 and return in the evening. This would ensure very good links with Asia and Australia.
Qatar would also consider being the first airline to operate flights with 787 Dreamliner to London Heathrow. It would have only one direct competitor, the Air India operator, who is preparing, in turn, to take possession of the first 787.
There would be ANA and JAL airlines, owners and users of Boeing 787 Dreamliner, but so far they have not announced that they will operate flights to Heathrow with this type of aircraft.
