Starting this month, Qatar Airways’ Economy Class passengers will enjoy extra TLC (tender loving care) and some travel inspiration with the introduction of a new line of collectible amenity kits.
Qatar Airways has officially arrived in Helsinki Airport during a special ceremony on Tuesday. To mark the launch of its routes, the airline organised a special A350 flight, but will serve Helsinki routes with A320 aircraft in a two-class configuration with 12 seats in Business Class and 120 seats in Economy Class.
Qatar and Finnair also struck up a new code share partnership which expands the routes available to oneworld alliance members.
Airlines launch new long-haul routes and set new records, on the same week that NASA announces new low-boom Supersonic aircraft project.
So which way are we headed around the world? The long and winding road, or fast as the meteor flies?
Qatar Airways launched its service to Sydney this week in typical Qatar Airways fashion: with flyovers, a river of red carpet, stars, and an embarrassment of roses.
The Doha to Sydney route becomes the airline’s third gateway into Australia. The Boeing 777-300 serving the route will fly daily from Doha to Sydney. Qatar Airways has been served Melbourne since 2009, adding flights to Perth in 2012.
Passengers obsess over the little things.
Inflight amenity kits are popular. (People also want the dish on inflight meals too, but we’ll leave food for another time.)
Take the flying experience comments of Julie Zeveloff of Business Insider who recently compared her long-haul business class flying experiences between Delta and Emirates.
While Zeveloff had a lot of good things to say about both airlines, one slight disappointment really seemed to tip the scales: slippers, or the absence thereof.
Airbus and Philippine Airlines announced at the Singapore Airshow a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) for six A350-900s, with options for another six purchase which will support Philippine Airlines future long haul fleet.
Philippine Airlines further confirmed that its A350-900s will feature a premium three class layout and will operate on non-stop flights from Manila to the US west coast and New York, as well as new destinations in Europe.
The aircraft continues to grow in popularity around the world and Airbus reports is particularly popular among Asia Pacific carriers.
Following the launch of its new Going Places Together Campaign, Qatar Airways has sweetened the flying experience for families further by introducing new Hasbro In-Flight Kid’s Packs. To promote the new child-friendly in-flight product, the airline has launched an adorable Mr. Potato Head Goes on Holiday spot, featured on its YouTube channel.
