Qatar Airways chief executive Akbar al-Baker told Reuters on Sunday that the airline could soon run out of cash it needs to continue flying.

 

Qatar Airways is one of few airlines continuing to maintain scheduled commercial passenger services and over the next two weeks expects to operate 1,800 flights.

 

"We have received many requests from governments all over the world, embassies in certain countries, requesting Qatar Airways not to stop flying," Baker told Reuters.
