Default Qatar Jet on the ramp at IAD

Anyone know the story with the Qatar jet that has been over on the ramp at Dulles for the last couple of weeks? It hasn't moved as far as I can tell, I would of thought if it was a mechanical, it would have been fixed by now or moved off the ramp into a hangar.

More then likely it’s a diplomatic/ruling family jet.

Yes cause washing some hotel bills through entities that have your name on them is such an efficient way to personally profit.

Why not just do it the Clinton way and shakedown all our allies for “donations “ that can then be “administered “. Then it’s tax free as well.

That is true. Anything with a Trump name on it has been tanking. That doesn't prevent those who want to curry favor from showing the love.

The oil rich families of the ME are equal opportunity favor buyers, er “campaign contributors”.

This is how they managed to be the only civilian transports flying through US airspace the days after 9/11.
