Qatar Airways Business, A350, Doha to Frankfurt

Recently I had the opportunity to fly on Qatar Airways’ new A350 Business Class, from Doha to Frankfurt.

The flight was operated by the second A350 to be delivered to Qatar, which at the time of flying was just less than a month old.

As usual, I have put together a video trip report which you can find at

However, some photos of the trip are below.

Waiting for departure from gate A1 at DOH, next to company A380 operating the morning London service

Soaring over Bahrain around 15 minutes after take-off

The A350 Business Class cabin - notice no central overhead lockers

Cruising across the Black Sea. The A350 is a fantastic aircraft, very smooth and almost as quiet as the A380

The second meal service, a delicious chicken and blue cheese salad, washed down with a Kiwi Sauvignon Blanc

followed by a cheese board and a glass of the Kopke 1974 port

Arrival into Frankfurt, right on schedule
