Taking advantage of one of the various great Qatar Airways business class offers I flew from Prague to Bangkok.
Qatar Airways uses an A320 for the leg Prague to Doha. At first this might be causing you to be sceptic, as many airlines fly their narrow-bodies with regional business class configurations which don’t feature lie-flat seats. But a quick research shows that Qatar actually uses a full lie-flat configuration. And indeed, even though I already knew that it is a proper business class I was still pleasently surpised when I stepped on the plane.
The most obvious downside compared to their Dreamliner, A350 and A380 business class is the 2 – 2 seat configuration, so if you are a single traveler, you will not have a lot of privacy and the window seats don’t allow direct access to the aisle. If you travel in pairs, this is less of an issue. I was lucky – had no neighbor.
The amenity kit provided by Brics and Monte Vibiano contained socks, sleeping mask, ear plugs (not in picture), anti-aging moisturizer, fefreshing facial spray and lip balm.
As expected with Qatar the meals were good.
I really liked the Chicken Biryani. I was a bit disappointed by the Arabic Mezze though, and that is one of the few catering items where I rate Etihad higher than Qatar.

Service was impeccable, the crew was very friendly and attentative. Especially Alex was a real pleasure.
I felt the in-flight entertainment (IFE) had a decent selection, but I wasn’t overwhelmed. I started to watch the Dark Tower, but felt in dire need of a nap after meal service, so I turned the seat to bed position and slept for about 1h.
After the nap I enjoyed a cappucino and some Godiva chocolate and watched a quite entertaining Korean movie, The King’s Case Note.
I arrived well rested in Doha after a short 5:37h flight.
