Qatar Airways Boeing 787-8 // Doha to Denpasar (Bali) in Business Class

After some relaxing hours in the Al Mourjan Lounge, it was time to board one of my favourite aircraft: Boeing 787.

1. Ground Experience: Immaculate

Boarding commenced approx. 50 minutes before departure time. Boarding was done via a jet-bridge. Priority boarding for First/Business Class passengers. Nothing to write home about. / OK / Solid.

2. Cabin and Crew: Warm & Genuine

I was greeted by a senior flight attendant along with the cabin manager overseeing business class and was led to my seat. Both flight attendants introduced themselves and took my meal orders.


Qatar Airways’ Boeing 787 series aircraft feature a 1-2-1 configuration, which means that each seat has direct aisle access. The seats were big and comfortable.

3. Service: Five-star service

Pre-departure drinks were served once I took place. Qatar Airways’ signature drink, various sorts of juices were offered.

While serving the drinks, the crew took meal orders.

Throughout the flight, drink refills were offered. The Junior flight attendant did a great job being attentive and coming up to my seat without me even having to press the flight attendant button. She was sympathetic and fully of energy.

4. Conclusion: Great (5 / 5)

I quite enjoyed it. The catering and the high degree of professionalism by the crew made for a great flight.
