Hi Hi Helloo! and welcome back to my new flight report! This time, I'll be reporting my trip to London as I received free flight from UK Embassy Jakarta for another photo competition as a campaign of Visit Great Britain, so I was flying with my cousin and her friend on this trip as they will start school in September.

Right after landed from previous flight, we went to a loo for morning call, getting our self presentable, then we head to the transit security check point, then we hanging around for a  bit, and spent most of the time at the food court. Right after that we head straight to our gate for the flight to London LHR.

Meal Service. The taste was meh. Nothing good about this, and later on nothing special about the meal on this flight.



The reading materials, tuck myself for rest I keep myself awake no matter what due we will arrive at London around 3 PM, so I don't want to stay up late later caused by overslept during the flight. 



View over somewhere. Even though I tried my best to stay awake, but yeah I fell sleep a couple of time. I went to the lavatory  and yeah you know to stretch the leg.

I just realise that flight from Doha to London was shorter, so the 2nd meal service was only this snack. You know what this is Chickpea thingy was nasty. Nothing good about this snack. And aaah don't forget that the crew was lie about the other option was run out. like Suddenly the beef option was there for a girl sat on the aisle because she said she don't want the vegetarian option.  



Descent begin when we are over English Channel. Cabin crew preparing for landing.



London! Here we come!



Land and taxied to the Terminal 4. Snap! I'm so late to took the BA's Retro livery!



One active and one inactive Boeing 787, presumably the engine issue right? The airplane dock perfectly. 



Disembark



Thank you and bye A7-ANF!

Conclusion

It was funny that after the introduction of A350 on CGK route so CGK-DOH-LHR suddenly all operated by A350. Both of the -900 and -1000! Still amazed by the PSU's! I don't know why but the meal on this flight was trash. the ex-CGK catering was real good I don't know why even though I opted for Bland Meal (BLML) but it was tasty!

    Thanks for this review.
    The cabin looks really good, saw it in person at the Paris Air Show and wish I can try it out.
    Catering looks good but too bad the taste didn't follow.

      Hey KL651 how are you? Yeah the cabin looks really nice and it was really comfy as well. You should try! Yup the looks seems really that good but the taste was absolutely rubbish, nevertheless still grateful for the meal service on QR comparing to what EY did on their cost cutting service and stuff :D

    While QR is usually the carrier to use in the middle east in terms of comfort, it seems they definitely fell short on providing you with some tasty food. Those pastries with filling served as snack are often not award winning and usually very dry. Thanks for sharing tho and the general product of QR seems to be decent on their A350s.

      I mean that flight with QR was the only onw that didn't provide the good meal. Other three flight was absolutely okay. Yeah to be honest the product on A350 was really decent, nice seats - I mean I can rest pretty well, the IFE, the cabin, everything was okay in Economy class IDK in Business class :D
      Thanks for stopping by ThomasDutch!
