They thought it would be a BA operated aircraft but instead it was a QR substitute. When they discovered the operator they decided not to board the QR flight. BA rebooked them on a later (BA operated) service. http://www.khaleejtimes.com/nation/emirati-family-in-europe-refuses-to-board-qatar-airways-flight 23rd August 2017 at 12:00 #823862 canuckladParticipant “An Emirati family has displayed exemplary patriotism and loyalty to their nation even while on vacation in Europe” The article from the paper didn’t mention the reason why it was QR320 , failed to mention that BA didn’t change the flight, the UAE embassy organised it? Thank goodness that we’re able to access quality newspapers like the Sun and Mirror here in the UK !!
