A Qatar Airways Boeing 787-800, registration A7-BCK performing flight QR-1360 from Johannesburg (South Africa) to Doha (Qatar), was climbing out of Johannesburg's runway 03L when the nose gear doors did not close prompting the crew to stop the climb at FL120 and enter a hold to work the related checklists without success. The aircraft dumped fuel and returned to Johannesburg for a safe landing on runway 03L about 65 minutes after departure.

The flight was postponed to the next day and is anticipated to depart on May 8th at 10:00L with a delay of 18:45 hours.
