Qatar Airways will have to seek government support eventually, Chief Executive Akbar al-Baker told Reuters, warning that the Middle East carrier could soon run out of the cash needed 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.
