I always find it difficult to decide what to put in these subject lines in order to generate enough interest to get answers, so hopefully today.
I am a single woman in my early 50s. Usually I fly Emirates, but because Qatar is a receiving attention, I want to consider it. Like Emirates, the flight schedule is very convenient to/from Perth, so that is one big bonus.
I have read a lot of complaints about the airline, which seem unusual given that it is being awarded, some seem to be the fault of the traveller, not the airline. I know a new airport is expected to be operational around the end of this year, so it should be 'broken in' by April. I won't have duty free alcohol and I am respectful of Islamic customs/culture. I like to take photos and it is one of the primary reasons I travel.
I would particularly like to hear from those people who have had good experiences with the airline and within Qatar itself.
