TRIP REPORT: Qatar Airways Economy Class
In July 2018 I flew on Qatar Airways brand new Airbus A350-1000 from Doha to London Heathrow in Economy Class.
This was the FIRST FLIGHT with passengers of this Airbus A350-1000 (A7-ANB) which was delivered to Qatar Airways only 5 days earlier (preparing)! I felt very honoured/lucky to be among the first passengers to fly on this beautiful aircraft from Doha to London Heathrow as flight QR1. The flight time is around 6 hours and 45 minutes. Seat for my wing view was 29A.
Boarding in Doha went smoothly and onboard you were greeted by a friendly crew, a very modern, and BRAND NEW cabin product. After departure i watched a movie on the well responding personal video screen that can be found in each seat. The choice of movies was good.
After the great meal service (lunch) I went to the galley and exchanged with the cabin crew. Even though the flight was over 6 hours long it passed by too quick. The leg room was good – even better than most other aircraft I have flown on before. Main reason was that the new IFE screens do not need a bulky computer under the seat anymore – meaning more leg room for you! After a pre-landing snack consisting of two pastries was served the flight arrived in London on time.

All in all a very enjoyable flying experience on Qatar Airways – especially on the brand new A350-1000 (5 days old aircraft on date of flying). I would definitely recommend and fly on Qatar Airways again in the future.
