Here's a few notes I made on my recent flights MEL-DOHA. Conclusion is that Qatar is a world-class airline.
Qantas 1st Lounge, good as usual but rather impersonal. 'Rockpool' staff always look bored
Smooth boarding. Charming reception from hostess. Krug Grand Cuvee poured (-:
Full wardrobe in seat BUT almost no space for personal items
Had to put laptop on the floor and Kindle etc sliding around
Seat comfortable, controls in armrest very complicated
Bed had plenty of room, softer and more comfortable than Etihad, much more tasteful than Emirates
Fantastic 32 inch TV screen, but again complex controls, good selection of movies
Nice BRICs amenity kit but plain pretty standard contents, moisturiser, socks etc etc. Expect better in First
Very good, personable service, friendly and feeling very genuine
Excellent menu, started with Oscietra Caviar and more Krug
Best bar in the sky and I've tried a few, well laid out for comfort and conversation. They bought my Krug down from 1st and let me offer to friends, brilliant little snacks in glasses. Great hostess.
Stunning airport and an amazingly large and class business lounge. Very impressive indeed.
Business DOHA-LHR on 777
Good seat pod, way more personal space to lay things out plus a neat bin for tech etc.
USB socket faulty. Bad a bit narrow, but not as bad as Virgin Australia, got a good sleep.
Service and food still good but not upon to 1st standards of course.
