An excellent airline

Review of Alberto about the flight Qatar Airways between Paris Charles De Gaulle and Bali on 27/10/2013 in Economy

Note: This review is about an experience that happened more than 3 years ago.

This was our first flight with Qatar Airways, travelling from Bali to Doha (four return flights). It was quite a long journey, which we felt a little anxious about. However, it was nothing less than enjoyable at all times, both outbound and return: check-in was well organised (not the crowding you get with some airlines), the ground staff are attentive to your needs, the planes more or less on time. Boarding was also well managed, with no hassles, and then the main part: economy class, yet the seats were comfortable and there was enough legroom, no matter which plane it was (Airbus 340 + Boeing 777); did prefer the A340 however, with its 2/4/2 seats. After the aperitif (rare in economy class these days!) the meals served throughout the rest of the journey were very good in terms of food quality... and quantity. The cabin crew, always cheerful and anticipating your needs, did their job efficiently at all times on each of the flights. The only relative inconvenience was the transfer at Doha: a long bus journey from the plane to the terminal; waiting area packed out (all connecting flights arrive and depart at about the same time); and a long wait for the toilets as a consequence! The take-offs and landings were perfect and the flights themselves calm (little turbulence). As for the baggage, it arrived in good time (phew!). To sum up: an excellent airline, and one to recommend.
