We have flown all over the world with most of the best-rated airlines. Our favorite is by far Qatar Airways, as the service and quality of the aircraft are superior to most other airlines. Furthermore, the benefits of being a regular guest make flying more comfortable. The loyalty program Privilege Club keeps track of your flights and offers different benefits depending on which tier you are on. So for the annual birthday trip to Maldives in May, why not make the flight as comfortable as possible.
Our trip started out at Copenhagen International Airport, where one of the benefits as a Silver Member is lounge access. So after the priority check in and the fast lane security, we headed towards the lounge. As Silver tier or higher, there will be lounges available in most airports that Qatar operates. Perfect for relaxation before boarding.
After a light refreshment, we went for boarding, where another great benefit, is the priority boarding. Regardless of which class you are flying, as a member, you have the chance to board the plane first, and find your seat in peace and quiet.
The first part of our flight was on a Boeing 787 Dreamliner
For Ekaterinas birthday, Qatar Airways Business Class is like checking into a moving 5-star hotel. From the moment we entered the airplane, the service was superior. The first stint was onboard a Boeing Dreamliner, where the seat layout is 1 – 2 – 1 on business. You are sitting in luxury cocoons, which gives you a good chance to relax and enjoy your privacy during the flight. The seats have great leg room and can be laid full down as a bed, during night flights.
Before take off the flight attendants was there to with us a pleasant flight and offering a refreshment.
The meals on Qatar Airways Business Class is always splendid. And on Business they are even better. For each meal, you get a menu to choose from, and if you have any specific preferences, the cabin crew can help you. We started our flight in the evening and had a marvelous dinner. The cabin crew made an excellent impression, serving in a perfect pace, and attention to detail.
During the nighttime, the light is dimmed, and it is very easy to arrive relaxed at the final destination or the transfer.
The last part of our flight was on a Boeing 330
Again with breakfast served from the menu and spotless service all the way.
Transfer in Doha
Hamad Internation Airport is one of the most modern hubs in the world, offering a vast selection of shopping and dining. Very convenient for killing a few hours while waiting for the next flight. Of course, the business class lounge is ideal for relaxation and recharging the batteries, before the next flight.
Not only for a birthday treat but for most of our flights we prefer Qatar Airways Business Class. The reason is the continuous feel of luxury; the comfortable way of traveling, the benefits of being a loyal member and the way they treat the guests. Many of the big Airlines operate the same luxury destinations and therefore is it possible to get a luxury experience for an excellent price. Keep an eye on Qatar Airways homepage or their newsletters to stay informed.
