    Trip to Qatar

    Hey, I'm gonna run to Qatar real quick. Does anyone need a handful of sand?

    I'm 767-ing to Vermont, Germany, Qatar and back. The worst part? When people in New York complain about how hot it is HERE. In Qatar you squint through your sunglasses because it's so bright. It's actually kinda cool, not in a temperature way. You get the idea.

    I'll be back Sunday.

    Handful of natural gas is more like it, that's what makes Qatar so important. Have a great trip and remember, it's a 'dry heat' (old Gulf expat mantra to get through the summer)...

    I have a feeling a handle of people are going to be very interested in what I post in the near future.

    Phil, 767 all the way to Qatar? Stopping over at Vermont and Germany? It's not a regular airline service, is it? Charter? Military? Can you let us know a bit more? Sorry for being nosy, but I am sure you can appreciate my extra aviation curiosity.

    Have a safe trip.

    Re: Trip to Qatar

    JZ1 - was waiting to see if someone would ask Phil about this. FYI Qatar is where the US bases that used to be in Saudi Arabia have been relocated to, and if you wanted to go there on business or as a tourist, you wouldn't be going via Leipzig (or Vermont!)...Especially since Qatar Airways now has its award winning service nonstop from IAD or one-stop from EWR...

    You've been to Qatar more times than I have now I'm pretty sure...oddly enough, I'm in New York.
    I'm neither here nor there.

    Maybe Phil saw a little bit of ankle out there in the desert and he's developing a liking for middle Eastern gals?
    :shock:

    Re: Trip to Qatar

    I've returned from my trip.

    I went to Qatar for work. I'm not in the CIA or anything like that, but I'll explain my airline-related job another day.

    Either way, we took a bit of a delay coming home and I stayed in a tent on a base, which was an excellent experience. I don't know how much I am allowed to share about my trip, but maybe I'll post something later.

    Re: Trip to Qatar

    Welcome back Phil. Qatar has some beautiful luxury hotels and is making a push for more tourism, so sorry you got stuck in a tent, but I guess it was a unique experience. Anyone can stay at the Four Seasons but you need to be invited to stay at Al Udeid!
