Qatar Doha is it the new airport?

Just arrived in Bangkok. Had a long stay over at Doha airport and it was so manky and packed. No seats, so had to make do with the floor. The solitary lounge was sold out.

Whats more glaring for us, we have a 6 hour stay there on the way back. Are there two airports in Doha?

Not fitting for a 5 star establishment like Qatar to have such a terrible airport!

New Doha airport has recently had a 'soft' opening for cargo operations. The main opening for general airline usage is anticipated in the first quarter of 2014. However, the airport opening has been announced many times before & we're still waiting.

Announced many times.

Still waiting...

Surprised, you must have been unlucky.,when I was there it was very busy yes, but free seats on the upper level and lounge was great. Airport is not one of the best, but it was certainly not manky.

Qatar is one of the best airlines I have flown with. The problem is I've had an 8 hour wait at Doha 3 times now and yes the airport is a little messy if you don't want to shell out £22 or whatever for the Lounge.

Hopefully the new airport will open in 2014, but haven't they put the opening back already several times?

It's "swings and roundabouts" at the moment with this airline and for now, knowing the very good IFE and excellent cabin crew more than make up for the average airport they have.

They're still operating the old airport, and it's straining under the buckle.
