A top-notch business class

Review of BTA about the flight Qatar Airways QR945 between Singapore and Doha on 18/02/2014 in Business
Note: This review is about an experience that happened more than 3 years ago.

This is about the main flight segment between Bali and Doha via Singapore.
I don’t think there are ever bad surprises with Qatar Airways. The 777/200 cabin and the service didn’t change since the outward flight.

Except that there’s only one business class cabin on this flight (4 rows in the front) instead of the two cabins accommodating 24 passengers of the outward flight’s plane (there was a second three-row cabin after the second door).

The business class seats of the 777 still have four windows. I wonder why the IFE screen is touch-sensitive, since the remote control is well conceived and the screen is really far from you (unless you want to touch it with your feet).
Unlike the lower-ceilinged Airbus cabins, the overhead carry-on compartments are much higher, forcing the flight attendants to slam them shut. A pity! :)

For this overnight flight, the horizontal beds are ideal for sleeping. By the way, I didn’t have the meal right after take-off (a light dinner). Breakfast was abundant, though, as is usually the case with overnight flights: fruit juices, as many smoothies as you want, pastry basket, several jams and honey, a starter dish (I had the tuna and the gravlax samon), and a main course (I had the excellent Asian beef and noodles instead of the classic omelet). You can have your breakfast any time you want, so that there’s no general wake-up call to serve the whole cabin at the same time. By the way, to optimize how much time you can sleep, it is possible to order your choice before going to sleep.
Since the options in the menu are very diverse, you’re not bored with the food even if you’re a frequent flier. And the coffee is always excellent.
Of course, the wine menu and the beverage menu are available throughout the flight, so it is possible to have your breakfast with a glass of champagne.
