Ah, the leftovers from the abortive Saudi LCC. Which looks even more unlikely now

Nice black leather interior but appalling seat pitch in Y and no IFE at all. There are four A320s in a C12 Y168 config according to wikipedia. IIRC they have wifi but I've never taken a long flight on one of these and my heart does sink whenever we get one, even for a 30 min flight.

QR shorthaul Y service tends to be a 'warm sandwich' and a glass of juice. I've only flown intra-GCC F/J on the 777, 787 or A330.

6 hours DOH-WAW in Y on an A320 was too long for me, even in the 'proper' QR spec.
