Indeed, I have not experienced a better lounge than the Heathrow offering for Qatar (better than CX in HK and JFK Concord Room, my otherwise top picks) and the 787/A380 business seat is the best I have experienced. I find the range of food and wifi speeds in the Doha lounge disappointing but as a package it is very hard to beat Qatar. A somehwat grudging criticism would be somewhat formulaic and robotic service at times but that is somewhat cultural and a function of individual preferences. In particular, I would love for BA to take lessons as to quality of in-flight catering – it knocks BA out of the park (save where a good cup of tea is involved !) They are a particularly good choice for African and Asian flights from London given BA’s retreat from eg Dar.
