By all acounts, superb.........One of only four 5* airlines worlwide. The others being Cathay Pacific, Malaysian & Singapore..........Only downside is your change at Doha as it is too small although currently being upgraded..........

I'm travelling LHR-SIN RETURN with Qatar in August. I'm currently booked Standard Class but have been wondering whether it would be worthwhile upgrading to Business class. I've heard fantastic stories of the service in both business and 1st, but standard has been somewhat mixed.

If I travel prior to yourself I'll post my verdict of the trip.

Have been with Qatar Airlines Manchester to Singapore (Rtn) GREAT aitline. Flying with them again later this year....Manchester - Singapore - KL - Manchester.

Standard class is much better then normal. Great food, free drinks - lots of films to watch on your personal headrest screen. Unless you are 6' 6" tall, the leg room is fine.

Business class is a step up. Much cheaper than other airlines but costs less.

You will be changing in Doha - don't expect anything too fancy.

The airport terminal is simple, clean and safe. Renovated last year for the Asia games it is part of a new airport due to open in the next couple of years. Think the present terminal will the service local flights.

Toilets - there are newer/better toilets on the upper floor - over towards Costa Coffee. Down stairs toilets are a bit too cramped/crowded.

There are a couple of ATMs but no bank (as of last January). Prices for duty free are very good.

We flew Qatar and enjoyed the experience...the change at Doha is easy to navigate...transit passengers are quickly divided from the arriving ones and there is a little to do whilst waiting. The cabin crew were attentive and from all corners of the world so nice & friendly. Would definately fly them again.
