Qatar Airways Al Mourjan Business Lounge is the most beautiful lounge in the world 😍
Boarding, Gate B10
Around 6:49pm, the captain came on the PA to welcome us onboard and give us the usual flight information including our flight time of 6 hours.
The flight attendant came to my seat again, this time to take my meal order. I chose the miso soup (she said that's the soup of the day), salmon for appetizer and red snapper for the main course, and for my breakfast chose the Congee. For my post departure beverage, I chose a glass of cranberry juice. I also took time to ask if they had pyjamas but I was told that they only give them on night flights. Well, I guess the departure time of 7pm is still too early to be a night flight 😉
Take off was at 7:20pm.
Around 7:56pm, Abdullah the CSD from Pakistan came to my seat to introduce himself and welcome me on the flight.
The other choice was Classic Arabic Mezzeh.
I was also offered some water but then opted for a glass of cranberry juice.
my previous flight from Helsinki.
Around 4:29am, the captain was back on the PA to inform us that we'd start our descent in 10 minutes and that we'd land in 45 minutes, with the current temperature in Bangkok being 25 degrees Celsius. Moments later, the CSD came to offer landing forms although I declined as I was connecting to Singapore Airlines to Singapore. Around 4:35am, hot towels were offered as well as Smint candies. We landed in Bangkok Airport at 5:10am and reached our gate 9 minutes later.
Just like my previous flight from Helsinki, this flight was also a very nice one. The food was very good and even if the miso soup I had hoped to enjoy was not there, the overall dining experience was great. The Armani amenity kit being one of my personal favorites is a big plus. Of course, the crew were all friendly and made sure we had an enjoyable flight. To all the crew on this flight, Shukran 😍
