Conclusion

After all this troubles Qatar handled very well and gave food, free accommodation and kept the flights and always informed the passengers about the situation which was happening. The other airlines like Air Asia, Jet Star, Silk and even KLM were standing before the check-in area saying for the going home and check the flight before return. Airlines like Qatar, Emirates and Singapore allowed the passengers to pass the security and came to the check-in are for gave them food and also provide transportation to the Hotel! It was my first flight with Qatar but I was very impressive who they treat me and only for this sure i'm going to fly more with Qatar! About the flight the economy class of QR is one of the best in the market and the crew were amazing. The only thing they need to improve a bit to be the best airline in Y is the catering and also the entertainment

    Hello, FConceicao, and thanks for this FR!

    How very unfortunate that you had to go through all the hassle because of the volcano eruption! At least Qatar handled the situation pretty well considering the available resources. So passengers of Singapore, Emirates, and Qatar were all put in the same hotel?

    The seating configuration looks awfully cramped there! Guess they have to make their 787-8 profitable somehow.. Though I'm glad they upized the capacity on the DOH-DPS route with 1 A330-300 and 1 777-300ER. That should provide passengers with more space for themselves.

    The meal service looks like something one would get on KLM economy. Plastic cutlery and the very small portion of the food.. Not something one should expect from a 5-star airline in my opinion. But then again suppose for the leisure market it's not exactly terrible.

    It's a nice touch that they distribute passengers real amenity kits to use on the flight, and it doesn't look half bad too! In the future when possible please give is a tour of the amenity kit. What's in it, and who the products are by.

    Thanks again, and happy flying!

    Thanks for sharing this FR with us!

    All things considered, QR did a very nice job handling the flight cancellation. Sounds like it was all handled professionally with meals and lodging.

    The ME3 aren’t so practical for Americans, but QR is the one that I find to have maintained the highest level of in-flight service. The meal looks really good and they have very nice looking cabins. The comfort kit in Y is a really good gesture. They are fully deserving of the 10 Cabin comfort rating.

    No pre-arrival snack on a flight of this length?

    Thanks again for this FR!
