So in the height of irony, Qatar brought an A350 to the US to make a major media announcement, and fly media back to Doha on a demonstration flight.
During takeoff, out of New York, the computer system decided that the 11,000 foot long runway that they were using was too short and applied maximum
breaking, aborting the takeoff.
At least one tweet stated "I know of another Qatar aircraft that could use this system".
