Very interesting cabin crew!

Review of BTA about the flight Qatar Airways QR945 between Bali and Singapore on 17/02/2014 in Business
Note: This review is about an experience that happened more than 3 years ago.

This flight was identical in every respect to the preceding one (QR944 on 01/02/2014 – an additional leg of a long-haul flight), with the same positive features, i.e. the cabin configuration, and the same negative ones, i.e. the tray meal service, which was of a decent standard, but Qatar had got me accustomed to so much better, and, in particular, it would seem that in 2014 the tablecloth has now gone for good!

However, what really stood out for me on this flight was a discussion with the Chief Flight Attendant (they can be identified by the black uniforms they wear instead of the burgundy ones worn by their colleagues), who came to ask me what I liked about Qatar, especially with respect to the service, and whether I travelled with other airlines etc.
It was an interesting discussion but, if the truth be told, I didn't really mention minor problems like the tablecloth :) And she had to go before I could ask whether I could be in the cockpit for the landing. That's for another time I hope. It's true that it's not often you get a discussion of that kind onboard one of the Persian Gulf airlines' planes, but there you have it, something that gives the lie to their critics who claim they only offer a robotic service.

On the ground, the issuing of the boarding passes and the baggage check-in took quite a while, but the baggage was actually tagged as first class as the previous flight was first class, and that happened even though first class isn't available for this destination.
