Qatar Airways Business Class PVG-DOH-CPH

Being a mainly daily reader of this great forum, I promised myself to add a T/R with lots of photos after my recent trip to Far East..

Unfortunately I canīt bring any photos of the outbound-trip from Copenhagen - CPH -routing: CPH-DOH-HKG as my camera did not work proberly - The quality of the photos added are not that great either ... :-(

Returning from Shanghai - Pudong - PVG I ensured to take lots of photos and this is the result... Hope You enjoy it...

Only allowed to post 20 pictures per T/R ?? - here is an additional 12 from the first leg:


Lavatories - kept spotless...



and another....


I managed to sleep for 6-7 hours in total mainly due to the perfect Full Lie Flat seat on the 777īs...


The Oryx system is perfect as well... loads of movies - music etc...


As I was sitting in a Bulk seat, the screen (apprx. 10 - 12" I would assume) is loaded in the "armrest"


After my long sleep, I asked the crew for breakfast and it was served immediately... Started with the very tasty Banana Energizer


Followed by rest of breakfast - very tastefull !


And again....


Yep.... You know... :-)


We arrived Doha as per schedule after a very pleasent flight - I had apprx. 3,5 Hrs for my connecting flight - perfect for a shower & some snacks...

I opted for a quick shower and dispite only 3 available, I only had to wait for apprx. 3-4 minīs...


Rain-Shower... Perfect.... !!


Shower Door


Enough space for dressing


One of two dining areas... Very nice food and special service !!


View from above mentioned dining area


Always possible to find a vacant spot as it never getīs too crowded....


"Waterfall" as well....


This "bar" only serving special tea... again Unique !! :-)

Congratulations on your first TR and what a great start on Qatar! The Premium Terminal is something special, especially the l'occitaine products in the shower.
