After visiting the brilliant Qatar Airways Al Safwa first lounge, I was picked up by a staff member and escorted down to the gate to board the flight. This time I was headed to Dubai on a Qatar A320 in first class, I’ve done this flight before, but on a 787 so I was interested to see how different the flight was going to be.

Qatar’s A320 first cabin consists of 12 seats configured in a 2-2 configuration. These are the older type of posts that Qatar has on their A320’s; a select few have B/E Diamond flat beds.

 

The recliner seat has a pitch of 45” and a width of 21.”

The seats don’t have a seat back IFE; they do have a screen that comes out of the armrest. For this short flight, I didn’t even bother using it.

The legroom was sufficient, and the seat was quite comfortable.

The annoying part of the seat is that there is no under seat storage.

On the left hand of the seats, there is a section for seat controls.

On top of the armrest are more seat controls.

The departure out of Doha was quite hazy, but once we hit 21,000 feet, it was nice and clear.

Now keep in mind this flight was only 49 minutes and first get a meal, very impressive!

I had more So Jennie with the cucumber, tomato and feta salad, and frittata.

Just as an idea for time, the plates were cleared at mid decent, that’s not due to crew that’s just the timing of the flight. The crew did an amazing job to serve 12 people and do drink refills.

Hello, Dubai!

The flight was on time and we didn’t even have to hold when arriving in Dubai. We quickly taxied to T1 (the worst terminal in DXB) to a gate and disembarked.

Bottom Line

The flight was great for what it was, the crew were friendly and even had a chat and laugh with them, the meals were great and we were on time for my next time, very happy.

I really apologise for the short review but there really isn’t too much to talk about.
