I got an email from Emirates regarding their cancellation of their “Global Sale” in Qatar “due to the requirement of governmental pre-approval.” This is quite alarming since “Global Sales” or promotions, especially if done online means you need to have pre-approval from the Qatari Government to conduct them here? Or does this have to do with the Qatar flagship Air carrier Qatar Airways trying to bully other airlines from getting passengers from Qatar? So that means any carrier who wants to hold ticket sales from Qatar would need Government approval. I’m sure the process itself would take weeks and by the time it gets approved, the intended sale would have been finished. This is a nasty precedent if this logic is followed.
