Good Morning Qatari Passengers and welcome on this new flight report to Qatar! This flight features my business journey to London with Qatar Airways from Beirut via Doha. I chose this flight to fly on the A350-900 and the A380-800, since both the timings and the price were awesome for this high season period.
Aircraft type: Airbus A350-900 Registration: A7-ALN Departure Airport: BEY - BEIRUT HARIRI AIRPORT - OLBA Arrival Airport: DOH - HAMAD INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT - OTHH Airline: QATAR AIRWAYS
The airport was very crowded that day, it took me 1 hour since I arrived to the airport till check-in, it was the Hajj season. As soon as I got to the lounge, I finally could breathe. The crowd was so tiring and some passengers were pushing the other passengers to be first in line. It was hectic and chaotic, it is very normal since the airport was way too over its maximum capacity. Beirut Airport is due to expansions very soon.
Let's eat light today, I have a long flight ahead, and expecting to be served three meals on my two flights.
And who's there? My bird! A7-ALN is scheduled for the flight!
I surely will miss MEA, as it still is my number one and favourite airline.
Time to go to the gate. Our bird is parked at Gate 1.
A last peak of Beirut before leaving Lebanon.
And there we are on board ALN! Loving the interior colours and quiet aircraft! It is very convenient at night! But i'd sure rather hear the 747 roaring!
The captain made his announcement and informed the flying time, 3 hours and 50 minutes.
The menu was presented as soon as we reached our cruising altitude
That's the meal! Unfortunately I didn't really like it, only the dessert was awesome, but I didn't expect such a dreadful meal to be honest for Qatar Airways in Economy. MEA's meal still is my number one favourite in Economy Class.
Meal Chosen: Chicken Kadai
I slept a bit after eating, and as soon as I woke up, I spotted Doha City.
Seat-belt sign was turned on, and shortly after the sun started to rise, the flaps were deployed. Can you rate that view?
There you go, the landing video ;) Did you really think I'd forget you?
There we are in Doha!
Thank you for reading my short Flight Report! See you soon onboard very soon!

My Qatari A380 flight from Doha to London
Beirut - BEY
Doha - DOH
Overall I was stunned about Qatar Airways' product on this particular short flight from Beirut on their A350. Their cabin is outstanding, the coulours are very much alive and the cabin crew are very friendly. You feel the pristine airline royalty with Qatar Airways and the IFE on-board keeps you entertained during the whole flight. The only drawback with Qatar is their meal, it was really bad despite the beautiful presentation. The dessert was impeccable though, the only reason I could rate 5.5/10. Qatar Airways should review and improve the taste of their meal in Economy Class. Business and First class taste really good though.
The question is, would I fly Qatar Airways again? Yes, absolutely! I would also consider flying Business class on long haul flights.
