Qatar Airlines

I am thinking of booking a flight to melbourne from manchester with Qatar airlines as their fare is very good and no long wait times between flights.

Has anyone travelled economy class with Qatar and can you advise of quality and comfort of the flight. We have 2 young children aged 8 and 3.

In short, it all depends on the aircraft:

- A330: crap

- A320 (some European cities are served with these): Forget about it

- B777: truly excellent

Hub: The old one is awful but is due to be replaced by a brand new airport during the coming months.

@Hans: Tried the first raw (incredibly narrow) and regular seats (incredibly small). seatguru.com/airlines/…fleetinfo.php confirms this with numbers. And if my memory serves often the IFE box takes some of the legroom... Average food. Crew similar to what you can find on Etihad or Emirates.

I am not often flying long haul eco, but frankly these were my worse recent experiences. And again compared to their great product on B777s, it is a shame.
