While planning my travels from Bangalore To Washington D.C., I heard a lot of suggestions about booking my air tickets through Qatar Airways. Having previously never flown with Qatar Airways before, I started doing little research about the airlines and here is what I got – They were named Airline Of The Year 2011 and 2012 in the Annual Skytrax World Airline Awards; They are also been ranked Five Star for service excellence by Skytrax!!!
Gradually, developing a curiosity in my mind due to the suggestions, reviews and given hypes, I finally opted for Qatar Airways – thinking of giving it a try 🙂 – Of course, it was going to be my very first fly with them and I was super excited!!
On the day of my travel, I arrived at the Bangalore International Airport two hours prior to the departure. The check-in and immigration process was completed quite smoothly within 1 hour of time; after waiting at the departure gate for another 40 minutes, I was finally On Board!!!
Well, I must agree – I was extremely happy and highly satisfied with Qatar Airways!!! Great Experience – right from the Check In at the airport, to arrival!! It is indeed a 5-star airline with all 5-star facilities and a definite recommendation for long flights.
Below is the detailed honest review, explaining all my experience with Qatar Airways-
TRAVEL ROUTE – BENGALURU(BLR) To WASHINGTON D.C(IAD) VIA DOHA
CABIN FLOWN – ECONOMY CLASS – Believe me – This is One of the Best Economy Class in market!!
STAFF SERVICE – They were just wonderful!! Very friendly and attentive beyond compare. They were polite, respectful and always ready at your service. Just try leaving an empty bottle on your armrest – it will immediately be replaced. Their attitude impressed me right from the moment I stepped in to the flight.
FOOD – The overall food experience was just great. The breakfast was not that good – I mean the eggs were like half-cooked which didn’t impress me much. But I enjoyed my lunch; you can just feel the flavor and freshness of the food here!! They also serve a large variety of all kinds of beverages to accompany your meals. I simply enjoyed the freshly brewed cup of coffee after my lunch. Moreover, I think, I was overfed in the flight!!
SEAT COMFORT – Comfortable seats with decent legroom and was fully adjustable to a bed position; I mean nearly fully reclinable. Just mentioning a point that the armrest could only be raised to 60 degrees, but that didn’t bother me much.
ENTERTAINMENT – The IFE in the aircraft was awesome and one of the best – specially the classic and latest collection of movies , the TV shows and the Playlist, that never let me get tired of my flight. I am not a gaming freak, so I don’t have any feedback about the games collection; actually I didn’t go through it at all 🙂
BAGGAGE HANDLING – My luggage was already there at the baggage counter when I arrived, so no complaints about it. If you are wondering about the baggage allowance for Qatar Airways, then let me tell you, they have set different criteria based on the locations and their different class of cabins; you can check here for more details.
VALUE FOR MONEY – Of course, it’s reasonable for money and I would surely recommend it to all kind of travelers!!! Qatar Airways is ahead of the completion, even in the economy class cabin. In fact, it is the best airline I have flown till date.
Now that you have already read my reviews, I would like to finally suggest – You can believe in Qatar Airways that they won’t let ruin your flight experience. Just don’t think much and try them!! BOOK YOUR TICKETS NOW!!
NOTE : All my reviews are always my very own based on my experience and services received.
