(This Flight Report was originally posted in French here: http://flight-report.com/fr/report-5926.html) Hello English readers it's my first report in English and it was the first time on B787 for me. I reside in Northern France near Lille. I enjoy flying and travelling. FLIGHT REPORT: When I reserve my last trip of 2013 to the United Arab Emirates, it is already too late to obtain direct flights from CDG at reasonable prices for my portfolio. Indeed the prices charged by AF and EY are prohibitive during this period. Finally ITA matrix propose an economical solution for a flight from BRU with QR. I book these flights only by phone with an employee very competent. Problem with the return flight: we have more than 15hr layover in DOH awaiting our connecting flight but this will be a great opportunity to visit Doha capital city of Qatar. Furthermore,it's a happy coincidence that will allow me with the following routing to fly 3 times with the dreamliner Routing BRU - DOH ECO, B787-8 Y Here DOH - DXB ECO, B787-8 Y later DXB - DOH ECO A320 Y later DOH - BRU ECO, B787-8 Y later
