Etihad & Qatar Air

Hi,

 

As the title suggests, for those that have flown with either Etihad and / or Qatar airways, what are they like?

 

I'm currently looking at multidestination flights (flying in Manila and out of BKK) and these are the only airlines that are doing decent prices.

 

Thanks in advance for any replies.

I usually flight with Qatar when going to LoS. There is always a stop en route to Doha but they are well priced and the international flights all have movies on demand - always a bonus. I recommend them.

done Etihad many times, everything is top notch with them

Qatar are meant to be "the worlds 5 star airline" according to their adds..they are meant to be very good

I have a Problem..... I just can't decide if its a good problem or a bad problem...

I flew with both of them for my last two trips. Qatar airways was superior

Have flown with both but would put Qatar ahead on service. But with all airlines it all depends on the mood/quality of the cabin crew on that particular plane

You have the right to remain silent, anything you do say will be taken out of context and used against you!

I flew with Qatar Airways on my last trip in May. It is a very nice airline, and the prices are fairly cheap but they are going up every day. Now that more people are starting to use them, it seems... You have plenty of space, and the seats are pretty comfortable. You also have an On Demand screen on the back of each seat, so that you can control what you watch or listen to. I was traveling from Dubai, with a lay over in Doha. Very pleasant flight and staff. But like most airline food, try to eat before you get on the plane because it isn't very good!

I have flown with Etihad a few times and have found them to be a very good airline. Good inflight entertainment and the staff are very helpful.

One note of caution: I fly from Manchester(UK) So with Etihad its a schedule flight from Manchester to Abu Dahbi and then another schedule flight from abu dhabi to Bangkok. When I first flew with them I would only be in transit at abu Dhabi for about 2 to 2 1/2 hours. Nowadays depending on what day you fly you could be in transit at abu dhabi for at least 12 hours

Thanks all for your replies.

Not a bad (so far) word said against them.

I didn't realise that they were that good. I always thought that they were in the bargain basement league of airlines!

 

The reason that I asked is that I was planning a multi-destination trip to Manila and BKK and they were giving the best prices. I've since read about the SkyTeams "Asia Pass", but no idea how to arrange one (it only says to contact your travel agent).

Anyone booked one before?

Come to think of it, I might start a new thread on it.

Flown both a few times. As i remember Qatar had superior in flight entertainment. But both are very good - up there with the best. My ex was a trolly dolly so i got a few free flights :)

 

Heard some good things about Kingfisher as well if thats an option for you. Not sure about being in the same league though.

I've never flown on Etihad, but a family member has and said it was ace.

 

I've flown Qatar many times and is my most favourite airline

 

To be honest though, I have yet to here a bad report about any of the Arab based airlines.

Flew Qatar from EU to Manila via Doha in tourist class.

 

Good space in tourist class even for a big guy like me. Good service. Food so so.

 

A lot of bussing around in Doha airport as their new terminal is not ready. So you need about 90 minutes between flights.

As others have said they are both very good and certainly better than Eva, Gulf, Thai.

 

I have flown business on both as well and again absolutely excellent...Etihad probably clinches it due to their flatbed seats and 'cabin' type arrangement but both are excellent. A notch above Gulf business.

 

The premium terminal at Doha is amazing.

    • For those that don't know, I did Friday meetings before many years ago,  I feel like we are missing a regular meeting for members,  I am aware guys meet at PA affiliated bars. But I want to start meeting people again, I'm inviting the guys following my YouTube also.

      The meetings is a chance to get to meet each other,  I plan to be at every meeting, I also have Dean from Dive bar that has offered to help out with a crawl after.
      The meetings will be  Monday  6 pm - 8 pm each week.  (The improvised bar crawl will commence at 8 p.m.  Dean will make his own plans for that.)

      Due to low numbers of people in town, I will start the meetings in our bars to help our girls and managers, please check back often incase things are changed.  I will be sharing the love around town later, but Soi 6 is first on my list (including bars that are friendly competition)   
      If bar owners want us to have a meeting at their bar,  they need to have a minimum of 10 girls.  I'm not dragging people to empty bars for favours.
      Please help us invite other members, it takes a while to get momentum.
      Monday 6 pm - 8pm  (then bar crawl after)
      21st March - Playpen Soi 6
      28th March - Night wish bar Soi 6
      4th April - Toy Box bar Soi 6
      11th April - Repent Soi 6
      18th April - where angels play Soi 6
      25th April -  (next bar we have open)

      2nd May - (next bar we have open)
      9th May - Cooters bar soi 6 
      16th May - Hot shots bar Soi 6
      23rd May - (next bar we have open)
