In 2013, The Economist stated that “review of the online forums used by cabin crew indicates that Qatar has a reputation for rigour among industry experts, including “accusations of severity and pretensive control are commonplace,” and that “the conditions set by Qatar Airways go beyond the more familiar rules… the employee may be removed if she becomes pregnant (which she must disclose contractually “from the date of her knowledge of her appearance”).  Airways CEO Akbar Al Baker had previously stated: “We don`t operate the Secret Service, we are an airline. The reason I know that everything that happens in the company is… I`m everywhere, I talk to everyone, I listen to them.  “The agreement will increase the choice opportunities for thousands of passengers and make it easy to connect to a considerable number of new destinations, particularly throughout Africa, Asia and the Middle East. Using our complementary strengths, this agreement will also provide benefits to support the re-establishment of international passenger traffic. What do you think of Qatar Airways` codeshare agreement with Air Canada? Do you think this is a good step for the airline? Let us know what you think of the initiative in the comments section. In May 2007 (2007-2005), Qatar Airways and Airbus signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) for the acquisition of 80 Airbus A350 XWBs, including 20 A350-800s and 40 and 20 -900 and 1000 aircraft, the first to be delivered in 2013.  The agreement was reached in June at the 2007 Paris Air Show;  Three other Airbus A380s were also awarded to the contract.
 In July of the same year, at the Investigation Ceremony of the Boeing 787 in Everett, Qatar Airways was recognized as a future customer for this type when its logo appeared on one side of the brand new aircraft. At this stage, the company had not confirmed that it had ordered a number of these new aircraft.  In November of the same year, a firm order for 30 Boeing 787-8s and options for 35 other -9 or -10 aircraft were confirmed. The order also included 14 Boeing 777-300ERs, six Boeing 777-200LRs and seven Boeing 777Fs, while five other type aircraft were available. The total contract was valued at $13.5 billion.   At the end of November 2007 (2007-11), the airline took delivery of its first 335-seat Boeing 777-300ER.  The network continued to grow in 2007 with the arrival of Newark in June Nagpur – the company`s seventh destination in India – in September and Stockholm in November.  A new scheduled service to New York-JFK, which began in November 2008 (2008-2011), replaced the Newark Highway.  The first two Boeing 777-200LRs were delivered by the aircraft manufacturer in February 2009 (2009-2002).  The Middle East operator recognizes the meaning of codeshares.
When it comes to North America, it already has two valuable agreements with American Airlines and JetBlue. These partnerships have been beneficial this year, given a reduced flight plan in which Qatar Airways has encouraged its routes to help its passengers connect to other airports within the United States.
