This lounge is the highlight of Qatar Airway’s Business Class Lounge in Doha. This lounge is specifically for Business Class passengers traveling on Qatar Airways only (and also QR elite members traveling on QR birds). There is a separate Business Class Lounge for OneWorld Business Class passengers.

QR303 (DOH-HEL), QR302 (HEL-DOH) and QR848 (DOH-KUL)
I decided to lump the review of all 3 flights under one post as these flights offered similar experience using the same type of plane (and hence cabin).
Unlike the A330-200, the A330-300 experience was much better. Unlike the former, A330-300 seats are 180 degree full flat and newer with more storage space allocated. As A330-300 is longer, the Business Class Cabin thus has more seats (30 vs 24 in A330-200) and is not cut off by the galley. Seats are still configured in 2-2-2 making it less attractive than those on Dreamliner and A350-900 (or Qsuites).

Qatar Airways had a tremendous promotion for Business Class ex KUL and BKK late 2016 and I decided to make the plunge and grab the tickets for my most recent family trip. How good the discount was? KUL-DOH-FRA was going at $1.7k SGD all-in while my KUL-DOH-HEL ticket was going at about 1.9k SGD. If I were to do SIN-DOH-HEL? It would cost about 3.4k SGD!

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.

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).
