Nice black leather interior but appalling seat pitch in Y and no IFE at all. There are four A320s in a C12 Y68 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.
Only 80 total seats on the A320? Could you mean Y168 rather than Y68?
