Introduction

I was travelling to MIA and then LAX from Doha and had the opportunity to sample Qatar Airways’ impeccable transatlantic business class service operated using 777-300 and 777-200 equipment.

I have been fortunate enough to enjoy QR’s 777 premium product once before, to and from SIN, and for a product portrait you can see my previous trip report here. The cabin is in 2-2-2 configuration and both the seats and aisles are very wide. The seats are very comfortable in both lounging and fully flat positions.

In this TR I shall focus mainly on the catering and the view outside with some marvellous and varied terrain, including Iran, the Caspian Sea and the glacial uplands and periglacial lowlands of Labrador.

I hope that you enjoy it and I shall let the pictures do the talking from now on.
