Trip to Singapore, Vietnam & Hong Kong on Qatar Airways Qsuite
It´s time again to qualify for British Airways Gold status and with this first trip to Asia flying on Qatar Airways, I will get 560 tier points. This trip is an open jaw, flying from Oslo to Singapore and back from Hong Kong to Stockholm, booking flights on Scoot, Vietjet and Jetstar to fly us within Asia. With my second trip (to Singapore in August) and my third trip (to Bangkok in December granting Qatar Airways stays with OneWorld), I will get more than 1500 tier points which is more than enough to get OneWorld emerald status again. Also during this trip, we stayed at 8 different Hilton properties making my total stay to 19, and closer to the 30 stays needed to renew my Hilton Diamond status.

Since we already had our boarding pass, we went straight to passport and security control and within 5 minutes after arriving at the airport, we were on the way to the lounge 👍

my HKG-DOH flight the day before, this is a rear facing seat, although instead of being in the middle of the cabin, I chose a window seat.
Around 3:20pm, the captain came on the PA to welcome us onboard and to give us some flight information including our flight time of 5 hours and 45 minutes.

Moments after the seat belt sign was turned off, the flight attendants started unlocking the doors.
In the beginning of the flight, I asked one of the flight attendants if I could have a photo of the Quad Suite so after enjoying my meal, he informed me that he had prepared them for us.
At 6:23pm, with 1 hour 54 minutes left before landing, the CSD came to ask if I wanted something to drink. Unlike the flight from Oslo to Doha (non-Qsuite) where they had light options and an onboard bar, there was none offered on this flight. I decided to have some green tea which was served with some cookies.
With a total of 36 suites, I find it odd that they only have 2 lavatories here. The load was very light on this flight but I can´t imagine what it would be like if the flight is full.
Landing in Stockholm Arlanda Airport
Around 7:41pm, the captain came on the PA to give us updated flight information and that we would be landing in 40 minutes, with the current temperature in Stockholm of 6 degrees. Moments later, the crew started to lock the doors of the suites. Lastly, the flight attendants came to thank us for flying with Qatar Airways.
We landed in Stockholm Arlanda Airport at 8:19pm with a temperature of 2 degrees (OMG it´s like winter again). About 9 minutes later, we reached our gate.
Having flown Qsuite on the Hong Kong to Doha leg, I was just as ecstatic to be on this flight. This flight was even better as it was a daylight and I could really see (and appreciate) the beauty of the Qsuites. I thought the service was very friendly and the whole crew were actually very enthusiastic. The dining service was impressive although I think it is still not in par with that of Turkish Airlines business class. It was also strange that they only have one meal service on this almost 6-hour flight. Of course, one can always have a cup of green tea and biscuits the way I did 😉
Overall, it was still a very nice flight since the Qsuite is definitely the best business class in the world and with the price we paid, it was really worth it. To all the crew on this flight, Shukran 😍
