Bad Experience with Qatar Airlines

Graham Marshall - Thursday, July 17, 2014

I am flying today in Business Class on Flight QR8 from Terminal 4 at Heathrow Airport and it has been my misfortune to discover that Qatar Airlines will not allow my wife enter the Premier Lounge with me as she is only booked in economy.

We've arrived at the airport 3-hours early with the intention of relaxing in the lounge prior to our departure to Australia.

Because of Qatar's short-sided policy on allowing guests to join premium ticket-holders, I'm afraid I cannot recommend Qatar as a good service provider for international business travellers.

Unless there is no other option, I certainly won't be flying with Qatar again.
