It´s the start of another trip and just like last year, we are celebrating New Year in the Philippines. The business class ticket to Manila on Qatar Airways was much more expensive than going to Bangkok (at least when we booked this flight months ago) so we ended up flying to Bangkok first then taking Philippine Airlines to the Philippines.

At 9:51pm, the captain came on the PA to welcome us onboard and to give us the usual flight information including our flight time of 5 hours and 20 minutes and that we would be a little delayed as the "ice" were still being scraped from the wings of the aircraft.
At 10:32pm, the flight attendant taking care of our aisle came to take my meal order. There was a complete meal of 6 small portions and there was the usual ala carte. I chose the ala carte although I skipped the soup.
With an hour and 30 minutes left to Doha, the flight attendant came to set up my table.
Arrival in Doha
At 4:58am Doha time, the captain was back on the PA to inform us that we would be starting our descent in 10 minutes, with a temperature of 16 degrees and that we would be landing in Doha at 5:45am
Again, another excellent flight with Qatar Airways, the world´s best airline for 2019 according to Skytrax. They also have the best business class so I could not ask for more. I loved the fact that they had an option where you can have ala carte or a quicker one. Also the amenity kit and pajamas were lovely. The crew were friendly as usual and the Qsuite which is the best business class seat is incomparable. To all the crew on this flight, Shukran 😍
