Qatar Airways Wins SkyTrax World’s Best Airline Award.

Qatar Airways was again named World’s Best Airline in the annual SkyTrax awards.

The methodology behind these awards is not clear although it is published that airlines with ten rather than nine abreast Economy seating on Boeing 777s can be marked only with a maximum of Four Stars. It will be interesting to see whether the same holds true for airlines with nine rather than eight Economy abreast seating on Boeing 787s. Qatar Airways’ Boeing 78’s will feature nine abreast Economy seating.

Heathrow Lounge Opens.

Qatar Airways opened a dedicated lounge for First & Business Class customers at London Heathrow today. This is the first dedicated lounge outside Qatar.
