Check in first, check in last, whatever - irrespective of your blue peter badge, all the people on the same plane, arrive at the destination at the SAME TIME (shock horror!) - go figure. . . . . . . . . . .

HIA will operate 41 contact gates, which will increase to 65 once the airport opens Concourses D and E with six of the gates dedicated to servicing the Airbus A380 aircraft, of which Qatar Airways has 13 on order with the first delivery expected in early June. I hope this will get rid of the bus transfers.

The CEO of airport operator Qatar Airways stated last week that business and first-class passengers will not have access to premium lounges at HIA for the next two months, as they are not yet finished.

Instead, he said that passengers traveling Business and First with Qatar Airways will be given passes to the other airline lounges in the complex (Al Maha, Oryx, Gold and Silver), or, if these are full, vouchers will be offered.

Note: passengers who are not eligible to enter these facilities can pay for access to the Oryx lounge for QR140/person. An airport spokesman has confirmed that alcohol will be served in lounges at HIA.

That's for passengers who are not eligible for access to the Oryx lounge.

This is as per the statement made by the CEO. We will have to wait until we get some feedback from travellers.

Is broadlybentandy a bit jealous of privilege club members??

Once you have used their business class lounge at Heathrow, everything else is second rate.
