    Passengers have taken to Twitter to call for a boycott of Qatar Airways after accusing the state-backed carrier of monopolizing the local market and supporting unfair employment policies.

    Online activists using the tag @BoycottQatAir blasted the airline for issues including serving alcohol on its flights and not offering discounts to local students.
