Video: Most luxurious 40-minute flight: Qatar Airways QSuites and Al-Safwa First Class lounge experience!

In this video we take a special First Class trip on Qatar Airways, but that’s only because that’s what they call business class on flights within the Gulf region.

In this video we take a special First Class trip on Qatar Airways, but that’s only because that’s what they call business class on flights within the Gulf region. We’re flying QSuites on the quick 40-minute hop from Dubai (DXB) to Doha (DOH) onboard the A350-900. And then, because of this quirk of regional naming, we have access to the Al-Safwa First Class lounge at Doha during the connection. This is possibly the most luxurious combination of air and ground experience we’ve ever experienced on such a short flight.

In this video we take a ride on Etihad’s lovely 787-10 from Amsterdam to Abu Dhabi on EY78. Along the way we can’t figure out how to get our connecting boarding pass at Schiphol Airport; we have a chat with the Captain before departure; we get some beautiful views of Holland on the climb out; we test out the Etihad Business Studio seat, service, food and entertainment options; and we enjoy a scenic sunset descent over Iran and the Gulf.

Video: How does SAS transatlantic business class stack up these days

In this video we take a 9+ hour flight onboard Scandinavian Airlines A330 business class from Stockholm (ARN) to Newark (EWR). SAS cut a lot of onboard service and all its long-haul out of Stockholm during the pandemic so it’s nice to see both things coming back, little by little.
