Reply To: Qatar Airways business class – wow!Back to Forum
Flew ZRH-DOH-CMB this week on a 787/777-300ER. Overall it was great and the service well intended but still needs some polishing up. I thought I would feel “downgraded” going from the new 787 product to the 777 but I felt the latter was well maintained and even the IFE didn’t feel dated! Definitely one of my best flying experiences! Transfer in Doha was seamless and took minutes. The only issue was at the gate for the flight to Colombo – as there is such a small business class cabin, the Fast Track lane is only loosely enforced and as a passenger you have to make yourself known. Upon boarding the ground staff had to fight off the economy passengers in order to allow business class passengers on first. A separate lane would have made it more pleasant but it seems a plane with 300 economy passengers and 8 in business doesn’t warrant it!
