Plaza Premium First lounge in KLIA Satellite (not to be confused with Plaza Premium Lounge) is a brand new lounge in KLIA that has been contracted by Qatar Airways to serve as their Business Class lounge. This lounge also serves as the lounge for Etihad and Turkish Airlines too. It is located near Starbucks.

I booked this trip as a one way ticket as I missed out on Malaysia Airline’s promo return Business Class ticket which I usually get. I looked around and found Malindo’s promo ticket at RM 590 (all inclusive) for 2 to Singapore. This worked out to be only SGD $95 per person on Business Class which I feel is a steal!

This is the return segment of the flight I did back in February 2017. Since October 2016 I have been using return J ticket on MAS from KL as the price is exceptional at only SGD $200 return. Due to my recent trip, I had not book my return ticket and by the time I realized it, the promo Business Class ticket is no longer available. I decided to get a one way Malindo from KUL-SIN instead (which I will review later).

After a disappointing stay I had in 2016, I blacklisted the Berjaya Group of hotels from my list. Not only was Berjaya not able to live up to what it promised, they completely screwed up my dinner booking which I made for my staff (as part of my company retreat). After a negative feedback, they reached out requesting that I give them another chance and so here I am.

Now for the last leg of flight from Doha to Kuala Lumpur. The flight is operated on a Dreamliner (Boeing 787-8). 787-8 only comes in 2 cabin, Business and Economy. Business class in 787-8 is arranged in the 1-2-1 configuration (in reverse herringbone formation). This means the passengers will be facing away from the aisle. For this flight, I was seated in seat 2E.

Al Mourjan Lounge is the flagship Business Class lounge for Qatar Airways in Doha. It is a very huge lounge (spanning 2 storeys) with 2 restaurants inside. I was initially expecting that I would be able to use the Al Safwa First Class Lounge (as I flew in on First Class but out to KUL on Business as there was no First Class to KUL). Unfortunately, I was only allowed access to Al Mourjan.
Being part of One World alliance, Al Mourjan is accessible not only for Qatar Airways Business Class passengers but also for One World First and Business Class travelers.

The emergence of Airbus A380 opened up many possibilities for airlines to configure their planes, once impossible. We have Singapore Airlines with their Suites, Etihad with their Residence and Apartment and Emirates with their on board shower. These special classes can be configured to be on either level 1 or 2 (although Airbus prefers it to be on level 2). Qatar houses its First Class cabin on the upper deck, with only 8 seats. It has a very generous 83” pitch but with only 23” of width. Unlike Singapore Airlines / Emirates or Etihad, Qatar Airways uses open suite. They have an on-board bar in between First and Business Class cabin (this is not something unique and is available on both Emirates and Etihad A380).

TTOTY would like to welcome BD, our new contributor to the blog. BD is currently based in Europe and he travels extensively due to the nature of his work. Through his many travels, he had tried many different airlines (across all classes). He has decided to share his experience with us through his reviews on this site. He shall start off with his first review here. What better way to start if not to review one of the best airlines in the world, Qatar Airways. The first post will be on Qatar Airways Premium Lounge in Charles De Gaulle (CDG) Airport, Paris.
