One business class to rule them all, and to bring you to new levels of in-air pleasure…even on the longest flight in the world.
Airports are stressful, loud places and airplanes are cramped cages where you’re trapped with screaming babies and coughing strangers just inches from your face. The food is industrial and bland, your feet will swell inside your shoes, and jet-lag is inevitable. Right?
Flying Business Class with Qatar Airways is like a holiday in and of itself, and it will change everything you thought you knew about flying. It’s no wonder it’s been ranked the best Business Class in the world.
How could 17 hours onboard, for instance – the longest flight in the world – possibly be a pleasurable experience?
Well, let’s find out.
Imagine you hopped on a Dreamliner from Scandinavia and you’ve just spent a day or two in Doha.
Next up: a flight across the Pacific to Auckland, New Zealand to meet an important client, negotiate a major acquisition, enjoy a romantic getaway (use your imagination – pick a reason that suits you).
12.30am Doha time / 10.30am Auckland time
After an evening on the town, making the most of your stopover in Doha, you return to Hamad International Airport.
Normally you might not be looking forward to being at the airport two hours before a 3am departure…but for Qatar Airways Business Class passengers, the earlier, the better. Not because you have to be there – but you want to.
You’ve already checked in online and after moving quickly through security, you head straight to the Al Mourjan Business Lounge.
You freshen up with a shower in the serene, spa-like facilities, and then find yourself a seat somewhere on the 10,000 square metre premises. (Yeah, that’s about 10 times the size of an Olympic swimming pool.)
Perhaps you order a midnight snack – like a made-to-order omelette or a selection from the buffet, and ponder taking a quick nap in one of the quiet rooms.
