Made our way to the B gates where our flight was departing from. The flight was initially supposed to be on a 777 with QSuites but a few months before departure, there was a plane swap to an A330. An hour before the flight, I got a notification that it was switched to a B787.

Surprised to see the Adient Ascent seat. Comfy for a one hour flight - not sure how comfortable it would be for a medium or long haul flight.

Was offered a choice of OJ, mint/lime juice or water as a PDB.

Another crew member came by offering arabic coffee. My meal choice was also taken - it was a choice between a camel wrap or a paneer wrap.

The captain came on with his usual introduction and announced that we would be delayed by another 30+ minutes as we had to wait for passengers from the inbound Paris flight.

Meal was served 15 minutes after take off - went with the camel wrap, tasted like chicken.

Halfway through the meal, the captain came on to announce we had begun our descent. :D

Conclusion

1. Doha Airport is a dream.
2. The 787-9 with the new Adient Ascent seats is good and comfortable. How would it fare on long haul trips is anyone's guess but I think this is meant for short to medium flights.
3. Meal was great for such a short flight.
4. Dubai Airport T1 is ok; it was a long walk/transfer from the gate to immigration. On top of that, my passport didnt work through the egates even though I was registered. Took another 15 minutes go through the regular line to get processed.
