Qatar Airways – No more premium terminal

Hello,

Last night I booked 6 Business Class tickets for Cape Town / Doha / Athens and back again. After doing a bit of research this morning on what to expect, I see the premium terminal is now closed!

I called the South African Qatar Airways office and the representative I spoke to said that currently as a business class passenger I will not have access to any lounges in the Qatar Airport.

So for in intents and purposes I will have the same experience as an economy passenger while in Doha airport.

Does anyone have any further information on this?

when are you flying? The issue could be due to the change in airports.

Qatar Airways moved to a brand new airport last week.

You can find lots of information at:

The business and first class lounge are a bit behind schedule. They should open in around two months, or so.

Go to this link and scroll down to the "Note" under the 4 pictures. I thought I had read something about Qatar changing hubs and this explains why things might be different for a while.

Fair chance the lounges will probably be open by then, maybe not if behind schedule.

Lounges should open towards the end of June (in time for the A380?).

For the DOH-ATH leg, are you on QR201 or QR203?

J W read this it may interest you. It appears there is a lounge facility available, just not a specific qatar airways one:
