Travelling comes with a leverage of flying with different airlines around the world. As much as I love travelling I also love to try out different airlines before actually picking up my favourite. I have travelled in more than 8 different domestic/international airlines till date and yes I do have a few favourite ones and out of them, Qatar Airways is surely among the top two. I’m going to present my detailed Qatar Airways Economy class review from Delhi to Paris.
Qatar Airways Economy class review
#Delhi – Doha – Paris
It was my first time with the Qatar Airways long-haul flight. Travelling from Delhi -> Paris, France via Doha Hamid International Airport and it was surely a pleasant experience. The layover allowed me to explore the upcoming airport of Doha and already made it to the 2017’s World’s top ten Airports. My wonderful experience drove this detailed Qatar Airways Economy class review. If you plan to stay in Doha for a layover, I recommend checking out City Centre Rotana.

#Qatar Airways economy class facilities
Qatar Airways economy class seats surprised me for the good as it had a spacious leg room with superbly comfortable economy seats. The crew provided us with nice comfy pillows and a warm blanket for a good nights sleep that actually proved helpful to fall asleep even in an economy seat. The entertainment system in the flight had a wide array of choices. I can confidently recommend that Qatar Airways economy class facilities are from some of the best in the airline industry.
The cabin crew was extremely courteous and attentive with a helping attitude which was a plus point. I am the person with excessive water needs and require water every few minutes. After throwing away my water bottle while going through the security checks I was dependent on the small water cups in the flight but the air-hostesses were very helpful with that when I requested.
#Qatar Airways economy class food
Qatar Airways economy class food had ample choices and was served hot & fresh in the airline. As it was a morning flight, we were served breakfast with fresh fruits and coffee/tea for those who (like me) need coffee in the morning along with bread as well! The second part of the journey was longer the first so we were served meals more than once. In the first meal, I opted for a chicken sandwich which was a tad disappointing for me. You might wonder why..what could possibly go wrong with a simple chicken sandwich? There was nothing wrong with the sandwich, it is just the fact that most Indians are used to eating the meat/chicken fully cooked – not partial or even boiled and so is the case with me!! I tried but couldn’t relish the sandwich which my fellow passengers enjoyed to the fullest!! But there’s a twist in the tale – the second time I was asked about food preference I jumped onto vegan!! There I got the last vegan pasta served hot with cheesy toppings on the second leg of my flight finally from Doha to Paris. The patience paid off…finally! So, I can say I had an amazing experience when choosing the Qatar Airways economy class food.
#An unlucky incident
On the second leg of my journey from Doha to Paris, while waiting on the mentioned gate I was informed that the planes have changed at the last moment at altogether another corner of the terminal. I literally had to run as I got to know this very late & by the time I reached the new gate all window/aisle seats were full. I got the middle seat left out in an awkward situation for the next 6 hours – the troubles of travelling solo! There was only one point where I felt nice about my seat was when I got the very last vegan pasta 😀 Jokes apart, I believe, there should have been an announcement about such a big change & must provide people with their preferred seats to those who took the pain for web check-in. On second thoughts I believe the airport should also claim responsibility for such events as well.
#Final Words on Qatar Airways Economy Class Review
Travelling is Economy is not that fun but still used by a majority of flyers. Therefore talking about which airline stood best for me with maximum facilities in Economy class. Then, Qatar Airways will fall directly into that category!!
– Qatar Airways evidently stood by its tagline – “A 5-star airline“.
– Always ask about the food menu so as to be aware what’s going to land on your platter.
– Maximum flights take a halt at Doha Hamid International airport – which is a pretty huge airport in itself. So make sure you don’t lose track time while exploring the airport and stuck yourself in a tricky situation like mine.
