Transfer security was painless for premium passengers as there were dedicated security lanes. It was the peak arrival and departure bank during midnight and expected, Doha airport terminal was packed with transiting passengers.

Finally located the Al Mourjan Business Lounge and went up the escalator to the lounge, escaping the hustle and bustle below.

Lounge reception, but there was no need to be verified as our boarding passes were already checked by staff at the foot of the escalator.

FIDS, with mainly QR departures.

The lounge was huge, with a modern and serene design. Plenty of seating available around the lounge. With the expansive and open space, the lounge did not felt crowded at all.

However we decided to head to the proper dining area at the other end of the lounge. The dining restaurant is up the circular stairs above the pond.

Even though it was buffet concept, there were proper restaurant-style seating with servers setting the tables and attending to your needs.

photo 48754470768_be6669ddb8_b


There were hot dishes, soups, Arabic mezzes, and a huge range of desserts. There was also a tended bar area.

Checking out the dimly lit quiet area, where there were separate cubicles with sofas and loungers.

We had reserved a shower and it was available shortly after our meal. An attendant welcomed me into the shower area, and asked if I needed any amenities and I requested for a toothbrush. The shower area with separate toilet cubicle was very clean, with a very powerful shower and Rituals products.

Further relaxing in the lounge before heading to the gate.

It was a bit of a walk to the gate at A6, where boarding had already commenced. Also, we learned at the gate that the aircraft had been 'downgraded' from an A350-1000 to an A350-900. Luckily, it was still a Q-Suite equipped aircraft, though some of the Q-Suite passengers had to be moved around as there were less seats on the A359.

There were 2 pillows and a blanket placed at each seat, along with an amenity kit which was of a different colour but similar contents as the previous sector.

Compartment at the side which held the reading materials, headsets and a bottle of Evian. Also a small storage area for your small objects.

Cabin crew came round to introduce themselves, offering pre-departure beverages and a hot or cold towel. We were served on each aisle by a Filipino and an Indonesian crew. I opted for a non-alcoholic So Jenny champagne and a cold towel again.

We were then handed out pyjamas and slippers from The White Company.

Followed by the menus.

photo 48754988047_f44d41e45d_b


Ala carte menu for the flight. Crew came round to take our meal orders, and as before, we can mix and match any food items and have it anytime during the flight. The passenger across the aisle was having the supper dessert for breakfast later in the flight! The purser again came to every passenger and introduced himself, provided some updates on the flight, and assured that we would be well taken care of and to let him know if we had any issues.

photo 48754987957_a98cd3c891_o


The IFE system was the latest upgraded one with very fast response and latest IFE selection, and 'super' wifi connection. Wifi was free for 1hr for everyone onboard, and only USD10 for the whole flight.

Went to the lavatory (all 3 were at the front of the aircraft) to change into the comfortable PJs. One of the lavatory had a view.

Returned to my seat and the crew came round with warm nuts and glass of cranberry juice which I ordered.

photo 48754472658_a87660d373_o


As our light supper was being prepared in the galley, the crew came round to assist in making the beds. A bedsheet was placed over the seat, and a pillow case was also put over the pillow.

photo 48754472618_4a705018fc_o


Finishing up with the movie 'Alita' which I did not complete on the last Icelandair flight.

photo 48754792391_dedac53da5_o


Light supper was served, where I had a delicious soup which had a hint of lemongrass. The soups on Qatar were really awesome! It was accompanied by a very tasty warm breadroll, butter and flavoured olive well as well. After the breadroll was devoured, the crew also actively asked if I would like more.

photo 48754792361_8504513548_o


This was followed by the dessert of warm white chocolate and raspberry crumble. This was very good as well, and presentation was certainly first class.

Ending with more Godiva chocolates an a hot towel.

photo 48754792181_ce36962b2e_o


Time for bed! The bed was comfortable enough that I had about 3hrs of sleep. And I don't sleep well on planes.

Breakfast was served about 2hrs before arrival. Hot towels were given out, and our breakfast orders were delivered. Again, an elaborate table set-up and my first course of yoghurt and granola was delivered.

Being adventurous, we tried the Traditional Arabic Breakfast. Well, it was definitely not my kind of breakfast food.

photo 48754791356_9523736bcf_o


No worries, I cold also select from the supper menu and ordered a Nasi Goreng with prawns. It was not bad.

photo 48754986167_8b2050de21_o


We also ordered the Salmon Congee, which was very comforting.

photo 48754471203_a559064b4a_o


Ending with a hot towel and a cappuccino. Was offered some mints as well.

photo 48754986987_6d34294dff_o


Less than 2hrs more to go.

photo 48754472113_d48151d9bd_o


Just prior to descent, another hot towel was offered, which was my sixth(!!) on this sub-8hrs flight!!

Conclusion

It was another great flight on Qatar Airways. The quality of the onboard offerings and service is certainly considered the best if compared to a similar sector length flights. There is really a gulf between Qatar Business vs other airlines' business classes that I have flown on, and the tagline 'First in Business' is well worth the hype. If you would like to experience First Class service but satisfied with business-type seats (or Q-Suites which is near First Class), do try out Qatar Airways on your next trip!
