Wow, one government arm telling another not to do what it didn't want to do anyway. I'm not overly familiar with the reality of this problem and maybe I haven't looked but don't recall seeing any evidence of the severity of it.

All this is accepted practice in the Middle East, just a way of life, akin to financial bullying. I haven't heard or read reports from any of the other A350 operators having similar problems, for example SIA and CPA which between them operate 98 of type. Maybe Qatar are just washing them with the wrong shampoo !!!!!!!!
