i wonder if the big heads at qatar airlines realize the earth is not flat? you could fly the other way, ya know, like over the pacific, and i bet it would probably be cheaper on gas and take less time. though they call themselves a 5-star airline, i'm not complaining. and isn't qatar one of those oil money countries so i bet they don't even care? i'll see what it's all about,probably titty bars and steakhouses, when i'm in Doha from 2-6 am tomorrow. i'll bring my little globe with me - here, ya see?
