TRIP REPORT | Qatar Airways A380 (ECONOMY) | London Heathrow to Doha | Empty Flight!

1245 ratings | 172022 views
Detailed Trip Report of my Qatar Airways flight from London Heathrow to Doha, Qatar aboard the Airbus A380 in Economy Class. The flight was half empty to my surprise but it allowed me to get some very nice cabin shots for you. The service on this 6,5 hour long flight was great (as expected from Qatar Airways). After dinner was served I watched a movie on the ORXY Inflight Entertainment system and later on got some sleep on the 3 seats I had to myself. During the flight alcoholic and non alcoholic drinks were offered regularly by the crew. Before landing another snack was served. After a scenic arrival into Doha I was given a tour of Qatar Airways Airbus A380 Upper Deck where the First, Business Class and Lounge are located. Overall I was very content about the flight experience and would recommend you to fly them. The next flight to Bangkok aboard the Airbus A340-600 will follow in a separate video - coming soon.

It would be wonderful to have the flight so empty for the traveler. For Qatar that flight lost them millions in revenue.
empty 380... so you know why no airline will buy such a big aircraft ! :-( it`s a sad sight as well !

If you ask , you could take the business class amenity kit as well because most of the frequent flyers in business class will left their amenity kit on the seat/table

DO you think Qatar Airline better than Singaporean Airline
No. They are equal from my view. But the flights on Qatar (6-7hrs) have been shorter than my Singapore Airlines flights (8-13hrs)

So many empty seats. So unusual. Wow. I wonder how many LHR-DOH Qatar has per day. Definitely more than just 1. Can you imagine if other flights on this route are also as empty as this one - that’s a huge loss for an airline!

Qatar airways is a fantastic airline!! I have flown with them in the past and look to fly with them in the nearby future. Great service hands down!
Carolyn papapateras (16 days ago)
Was interested to know if on the next leg of your journey did you go economey as well
When you book a connecting flight with the same airlines chances are very high you will be traveling in the same class. So yes - the next flight was also in Economy Class.

Great look upstairs

Next yr off to Greece from New Zealand, usually use Emirates would love to try Qatar, have to either fly business or first due to being on permanant crutches and needing a bed, what is you opinion about mobility issues when flying with Qatar, once in the plane all is good but need assistance getting on the plane, have you ever come across a passenger with mobility issues
You come across this on every long flight. But mostly the airport is sending help - you should know it?
Tim L (16 days ago)
How come you were allowed to take a tour of the business and first class are you working fod airline for promoting the company?
If you ask nicely I am sure they will give anyone a tour (if the time permits). Of course you have to do it after the flight to not disturb the passengers in First/Business

qatar airways the best
Altamash Shaikh (1 month ago)
That’s why they should lower prices
Altamash Shaikh (1 month ago)
I mean their planes were empty maybe other had batter prices I find emirates better from LHR to Mumbai their price and service both are good
Why lower prices? They are pretty competitive on many routes. I only payed like 50€ more (flying Qatar) than the lowest price I found. Maybe a smaller aircraft would do the job? But we don't know how many people were on the outbound flight (Doha-London)...

Subscribed. Great Video. I wish you showed actual taxing and take off at normal speed. Due to sun light and your excellent photography. Couple of questions: what camera and editing software you use? How is it possible to get such an empty flight? Thank You keep up good work
thank you! I always put the taxiing and full takeoff as well as landing up in another video because the video would be too long otherwise... My camera is in the description. You get an empty flight like this by flying not during the holidays and with a big heap of luck :D

Hello, i have a question. In summer i will flight with quatar. I have only 55 minutes in Doha. Is it enough?
If they sell you a ticket with 55 minutes it should work fine. If not they can just rebook you anyways (worst case).

There it is again: "In case of landing on water ...." in the safety video. Landing on water in emergency? Like when? Nicely optimistic-sounding oxymoron that many airlines use, but has it been possible since flying boats? Good luck! Better to say your prayers.
Jessica Ang (2 months ago)
It doesn’t make sense and is not profitable at all for the airline. Why would Qatar Airways fly this 500-seater big aircraft (A-380) when there are only 20 passengers flying? I had flown a lot of times on a A-380 plane between Asia and Los Angeles, USA and also between Los Angeles, USA and London Heathrow and the plane was always 80-100% full. That makes real sense!
+Jessica Ang there were about 250 passengers onboard even though it appears different in the video ;)

Ranjith Ramakrishnan (14 days ago)
dLuxHD airline draws profit from first and business class but to break even Economy class should be at least half full or something ... so whoever said the airline lost money on this flight is obviously right .! But things like this happen I’m sure and they have other ways to make up for it hopefully !!
dLuxHD (1 month ago)
+YTNoob An airline draws most of its profit from First class and business class (and premium economy if the airline offers it). A simple google search will tell you that

I had a very bad experience with Qatar airways and it was my first time and it will be my last. I travel a lot like 4-5 times a year. And I always weigh my bags well I never had a problem. I was traveling with my son and one of my checked in bags was 2 pounds over. While the rest were like 49 pounds. They wanted me to take those pounds out. Plus they went and weighted my carry on they were 2 pounds over. And I didn’t know about their weight limit for the carry on. They made me leave the counter twice to arrange my weight and refused for me the second time just to remove one item to make my weight perfect for them. I was very upset and felt humiliated infront of all the people watching that. Plus they lie to me at the counter and said when you go to the gate we will weigh your carry on again and you would pay 250. I told them I will diffenetly never ever fly your airline. And for the food it was not good at all. My connection flight was with Middle East airline the trip was great and relaxing and the food was great.

+M G well said
M G (3 months ago)
You fly 4 to 5 times a year and you don't know that carry on bags have weight limit!!! That's quite interesting statement... Then fyi there is weight limit and size, for all airlines. Please review your ticket and go through your chosen airline website to know your limitation. You can always check the weight of your bags before heading to check in counter and put yourself in embarrassing situation, as you mentioned. Actually you were wasting their time coming and going trying to adjust your bags weight! I dont work in Qatar airways, just that you know, but for experienced traveller, you should know your rights and obligations, not take everything for granted and say I'm frequent traveler, ya well you don't sound as one!... If you have more kgs, pay extra or simply take business class seat, rather than blaming others for your mistakes. It's like a driver who goes beyond speed limits and wonder whats wrong.. Ya, read the visual signs and warnings! They are there for a reason. You wrote you fly with other middle east airline, you better not fly on my airline with such attitude, because you will have the same treatment. You receive your full rights and obligations must be respected at all times. Only service delivery that you can write feedback, rate and get excited in power. But the rest, it's shared norms among airlines, may get different following your ticket price and terms... So please calm down and respect others jobs and business.
