which airline would you choose-Singapore or Qatar?

Hi

My partner and I need to book a one way flight london to melbourne. He wants to go Thai Airways as its coming out cheaper. However, I am happy to pay an extra £100 more and go with either Qatar or Singapore airways. Singapore is still coming out £30 more than Qatar.

Can somebody please advise me which Airline would be better-Singapor or Qatar?

For what its worth, I recently flew LHR to SIN on Singapore airlines and it was in my opinion 13 hours of being spoiled and pampered, timed it for the A380 and must say it was pure enjoyment from start to finnish !!

Thanks a lot we decided to go with Singapore. Its such a long flight and we want to be comfortable and enjoy the flight. Also both legs of the flight will be on the A380, so its something to look forward to.

ps,have you looked at Qantas for any deals?

Thai and Singapore get you into Melbourne,Qatar go via Doha and BAngkok or Kula Lumpur,I believe.

Qanats will go straight to Melbourne via Singapore or Hong Kong or Bangkok,sometimes the craft will change to jetstar in Bangkok though, which means you would have to purchase your food drink and amenities beforehand,I believe.

Transiting at Singapore's Changi will be a much much better experience than at Doha.

thanks. we booked with singapore. It was costly, but there is something about flying with Singapore which always makes it feel special for me. Ive always found the cabin crew so lovely and helpful. I guess I know what Im getting with Singapore Airlines.
