Doha - Amsterdam (KLM, World Business Class, A330-200)
[YOU ARE HERE]
Amsterdam – Paris CDG (KLM, Europe Business Class, B737-800)
[NEXT] Passengers bound for Amsterdam stay onboard, it’s no surprise as DOH is still a bus airport and it would make it a very uncomfortable journey if we had disembark and board again.
Press available for passengers joining us here in Doha
Flight crew shift is AMS-DOH (1day) DOH-MCT-DOH (1day) DOH-AMS, but flight attendants shift is different, they are doing AMS-DOH-MCT (1day) MCT-DOH-AMS.
For duty reason Alcoholic beverages are not offered, their OJ is very good though.
I guess these are specialties from Netherlands? Flag looks very tacky imo.
Push and start slightly before STD, but with a lengthish 6h35mn flight time due to head wind, captain is expecting an on-time arrival at Schiphol tomorrow morning.
B787-8 Qatar Airways
Maintenance area with an A330
Nice view of Doha city center
Oh, an oshibori, I missed them!
Menu distributed along with a leaflet for Montblanc products???
Flight being late this is a one tray service for diner
Everything is presented on one tray
Butter + salt/pepper
Salad with feta cheese, watermelon with mint offered with grissini stick
Hot snack Falafel and vegetable kibbeh
Amuse-bouche consisting of sliced peppered chicken accompanied by tabbouleh, muhammara and makdous
Vanilla panna cotta with passionfruit coulis
This light diner was surprising quite good and fresh.
Then it’s time to sleep, and this is when things are starting to get worse, Picture of the seat in the fully “sleep” position (taken while on the ground at DOH), as you can see the leg rest support is ridiculously low making it very painful for your legs, seatback inclination on the other hand is “acceptable” for a cradle seat.
It’s time to wake up for the breakfast service
One tray again but with a choice of 2 mains
Fresh fruit salad
Selection of cold cuts
Golden baked waffles, served with vanilla custard and raspberry coulis
Portuguese-style scrambled eggs offered with beef burger patty, rosti potatoes and ratatouille
IFE is not from the latest generation, screen resolution is low but selection and responsive rate are acceptable.
And the obliged KLM houses, please note that they are not filled with alcohol being it from a Muslim country.
After a long taxy we arrived at the gate, I guess we are one of the earliest arrival
Doha - DOA
Amsterdam - AMS
I had very low expectation for KLM, and they meet them comfort wise ^^ this seat is just atrocious for a night flight, I can’t imagine how long they waited before thinking about its replacement, new seats are coming up and I will be happy to try them.
Beside that crew was still very nice, polite and attentive and food was not that bad with good portion and it tasted right as well, the only downside is the presentation with a lot of plastic and cardboard stuff everywhere, and the menu is made of a very thin paper making it very cheap (and please do not distribute montblanc leaflets with the menu, it's totally innapropriate!)
Stay tuned for the next journey, a morning flight to Paris CDG.
