I arrived in MUC by car and as always during the summer holidays in Bavaria, the airport was very crowded.
Nevertheless, the check-in took awful lot of time. There were a few Asian passengers, who thought they can take billions of luggage with them for free. They were not able to speak English and were not willing to pay for their extra luggage. Well - the whole process took about 45min and they occupied all two check-in counters for Economy Class. Absolutely well done! Great! Not a single passenger was able to check-in until they took them to another counter for bulky luggage. I really hate such selfish people. I mean you can read every information regarding your flight in the internet …. and when you want to take more luggage with you, you must pay.
All flights from and to Terminal 1 B in MUC.
When all that was finally done, I passed the security check and enjoyed the great view across the apron from Terminal 1 in MUC. MUC offers a terrific view across the apron and all the gates. When I arrived at the gate, the A350-900 was still at a remote stand - she was towed to the gate about 1.5h before the scheduled departure.
Here are a few pictures of my A350-900 in the LATAM paint scheme. By the way: It was my first ever flight on an A350 and I enjoyed it alot.
While I was waiting for the announcement, that the flight is ready for boarding - the A380 from Emirates departed for the flight to DXB.
Boarding for QR58 started right on time and was not very eventful. View from my seat.
The leg room was ok.
QR uses the hired A350-900 from LATAM for their DOH > MAD and DOH > MUC flights. Therefore the aircraft is equipped with the LATAM Economy Class. I have no experienced with the QR Economy Class on the A350 - but I think there is quite a difference in the inflight screen. Overall the seat was not bad, but the inflight screen was a little bit small.
A few pictures from taxiing in MUC.
The weather on that late Saturday afternoon was great and after a very smooth departure we made a U-Turn and headed South East. Picture from takeoff.
Video from departure in MUC.
About 2 hours into the flight, the dinner service started. Here is the menu card for QR58.
I have chosen the Chicken Tikka Masala. It was very good and the portion was not bad.
After the meal, I enjoyed the view out of the window and started with Fast & Furious movies. All eight movies were available on the inflight system. My flights were filled with entertainment.
There was great weather that day while we passed Hungary, Turkey and the Iran. A very smooth flight, no bumps or whatsoever.
About 1.5 hours before landing in DOH, a movie snack was offered. The crew passed through the cabin with a bag. Everyone was able to pick the snacks by yourself.
We started with the descent about 45min before landing.
Before landing, I had a great view over Doha. Very bright and shining :)
The landing in DOH was very good and we arrived at the gate right next to an A340-600.
After Flight @ DOH
I was amazed by the new DOH Airport. It was very clean and not very crowded - which surprised me the most! Compare to DXB at midnight - it was a huge difference. DXB is crowded as hell while DOH was "almost" empty.
