Seat 36K is listed as a bad seat on this map but I do think it has many advantages over other seats. The absence of a third seat means that the person seated in 36K has a very large area for storage. This was great for me as I am a photographer and carry a lot of equipment on my travels. Row 36 is also the first to be served and you are able to access the lavatories easily and quickly.
It was realy nice to fly this time. I am tall, 198 cm and use to have to little space when I fly, but this was a good trip. The food was good and service was great.
Booked in April, originally seated separately why! Kind lady on desk sat us together. Air crew lovely. Felt awkward reclining chair for person behind.
Excellent seat, but after trying a Qsuite it's definitely not nearly as private. Otherwise typical reversed herringbone layout, seat is angled towards the windows, but unlike on some airlines, there is no extended ("ears") curve at the top of the seat shell, which adds in privacy when seated upright. Service was top-notch, amenity kits and pajamas were given on this 7hr flight! food was OK, bed was sufficient for 3-4 hrs of good sleep. Good product for 7-8 hrs of flight. Row 3 is probably the best on this plane because there was literally no cross foot traffic to lavatories due to one lav being in the front and two in the back of the biz section.
Entertainment such as Flight Cameras, Channels variation isn't superior than the others Airlines. But the rest, i don't have complaint.
Row 11 is behind where parents with babies can use bassinets. So avoid this row if you intend to get any sleep. As my flight had 4 babies yelling at once.
Limited leg room because of a metal box underneath the seat in front
Not happy about change of aircraft from 787 to 777. Very disappointing and then the delay of 2 hours.
I found the seat very comfortable in all ways, the only thing is missing might be a privacy wall to the aisle. 180º seat/bed recline, nice screen and great food service on demand! Noise cancelling earphones provided, pijama and fine amenity kit. Crew was super nice and attentive. Would recommend it 100%
Not good - despite buying new aircraft QR are still fitting them out with horrible big metal entertainment boxes under many of the seats. The one under 11K reduces the width of the foot space, the one under 11J is at right-angles reducing depth instead. What a choice!
The seat was comfortable the staff were exceptional constantly checking if I wanted anything. Most impressive was the food which I can only describe as fantastic!
A well designed business class area. Good, friendly staff. Comfortable seating, with full reclining bed a real bonus. Entertainment system OK, although routing on handheld device a bit quirky. Choice of films and music reasonable. although more under "classic" heading would have been welcome. Food and beverages very good. Good selection of wines, but from a personal standpoint would have welcomed a slightly larger range of whiskies (my own preference is for Islay malts). Only main issue on this flight (and not on the return journey from Doha to London on 2 April) was a group of passengers mingling in the open area behind row 5 who were drinking more than other business class passengers and were becoming louder as the flight progressed. Fortunately it was a daytime flight (2.00pm departure from Gatwick) and the noise reducing headphones proved a real blessing in diminishing the sense of intrusion, but some passengers were trying to sleep and the noise was detrimental to this. Staff tried their best to mitigate the intrusion but the group seemed determined to be noisy. Procedures for both boarding and disembarking were very smooth and we were able to transfer to our ongoing flight with ease.
Having been allowed to explore the Economy section of this aircraft I can only agree that a 3-3-3 seating arrangement has been crushed into what should be 2-4-2. In the front cabin, however, where BA has 8 seats across (in its dreadful ying-yang layout) QR only has 4. so giving everyone direct aisle access. There is also a sense of spaciousness in the cabin, particularly because of the dresser type arrangement behind row 5. One downside is the lack of overhead bins for the middle seats. The seats are good, although the footwell a little cramped. I still prefer a QR A380, or any aircraft (such as a 777 or A350) offering the Q Suites. Having now flown on the 787s of five different airlines I must admit that I've never noticed the vaunted difference in pressurisation. Those enthusing about the of the windows aren't old enough to have flown in a Vickers Viscount.
Fantastic experience -window seats had lots of leg room and were very private despite the non Q-suite configuration. Notably, even though the flight originated in Dubai, the food which was mediocre quality and the selections were not exciting for such a long flight. You'd be advised to eat in the lounge before where the food was really great. Entertainment system is great. Some of the wines were inexpensive but the champagne was good.
The flight which I flew with Qatar Airways Boeing 787 Dreamliner was the QR 972 from Doha back to my home - Ho Chi Minh City in last July and my seat on that flight was 26H. Personally, I think this seat - 26H overall was a good seat for me since I had more legroom, the seat was so comfortable and the crew was so helpful and professional. I hope I have a chance to fly with Qatar Airways again in 2019.
I found this seat incredibly narrow. I had to move and suffer less legroom, which was more comfortable than having hips crushed in a small width seat. I am a very tall guy so needed the leg room.
I don't know what all the fuss is about. Yes the seats are narrow but the bulkhead seats give you ample leg room and 2 windows. I found the window seat very accessible and comfortable, and far, far better than 11a!
The seat is horrible, I am 1.83m tall, and my knees were stuck in the front seat at all times. It's also narrow, so if there are 3 people my size travelling shoulder to shoulder ,it'll be a very intimate experience. It was HORRIBLE, I am surprised they can fill the plane. Possibly everyone would avoid that aircraft if it'd be to fly a second time. The service was good tho, too bad they've wrecked such an amazing aircraft with their shitty seats. Never again !
The worst I ever flew. At 190cm body size is a nightmare chair!
restricted legroom and limited under seat storage space due to the presence of an entertainment equipment box
