Qatar Airways (Doha) today operated the first commercial flight powered by natural gas. Airbus A340-642X A7-AGC (msn 766) successfully completed a flight between London (Gatwick) and Doha. A7-AGC carried special stickers for the event (any photos?). The country of Qatar has one of the largest reserves of natural gas in the world.
