Does Qatar offer a great First Class experience?
Yes, it does! But only at Doha airport and inside their impressive Airbus A380.
We had the pleasure to fly their First Class service from Paris CDG to Doha DOH. The checkin and airport service at CDG were inexistent… Very bad VIP Lounge (we heard a new one was opened) and no priority boarding, compared to other priority passengers.
Their cabin is beautiful, but does not offer too much privacy and does not have any storage space. Seat is very comfortable and spacious, but a little bit dark. Food and beverage were exceptions, as flight attendant impeccable service.
Service at DOH was the best possible. A Qatar host waits for you just outside the airplane and escorts you through security (in case of a connection) and then to Qatar First Class lounge. We had a 10hs connection and we were pleased that a private resting room was offered at the lounge for us to sleep and take a shower. The room was not large, but had everything you need with great quality amenities. Lounge is impressive! Huge and very quiet. Their ‘a la carte’ restaurant was amazing. Before boarding, a Qatar host will also escort you to your next flight.
Very happy to enjoy the Qatar First Class experience!
