...and it all points towards Qatar Airways!

Even better, it was on a state of the art B787 airplane.
If only it was on the A350...

QR28 MAN-DOH B788....an unfortunate middle seat flight

Hi Jishnu,

My apologies for getting to your trip reports so late. A busy semester allowed me to read them just today.

Amazing TRs as always, all that drama (from your ORD-AUH TR) was unfortunate, but its good that you finally got to CCU, albeit delayed.

I loved the pictures and the video versions of all your TRs as well.

- I looked at the pictures a month ago ... finally got to reading bit Smile
- I loved driving around airside at MAN, with all those charter planes and nice liveries.
- 787s get up very quick, quite the opposite of the 777
- Did you search dreamliner and change everything to Dream)liner Evil or Very Mad AAAHHHHHH!!!!
After a headache of a reroute glad you had a nice flight.

You're apologizing, and here I am yet to read your trip reports! Tell me about busy semesters, oh my god! It is picking up for me as well.

Yeah, this was all such an important lesson in everything....being patient is the key, I suppose! Very Happy

Hey thanks so much Nikhil! Smile
Air side transfers are always fun Very Happy
Yeah - the 787s also get down very quickly, and rather smooth! Very often on the DEL-CCU routes especially I have seen us cruise at 41000ft, and the next thing I know we are at 35000ft. And nothing felt!!
Nah, Dream)liner is just habit, LOL! Laughing

Two lovely TRs, and perfectly JB-esque!
Lovely MAN spotting (especially the different angles for the Saudia B789): an air-side transfer, wow! However, I would not like to go through the same circumstances as you did...harrowing!
Nice food on-board the MAN-DOH segment. The meal and the snack.
Thank you for the power-port part, which I always look for in a trip report Smile
The layover was certainly quite a dampener, and not being able to manage quite a few things on the TODO list...I definitely liked your spotting pictures!
Nice A7/BCT pun, with TG involved as well Smile
The QR route map with an Ethihad'ish triangulated coloured touch...hmm...
Nice food as well.
The CCU baggage part is always a pain: bags take really long to come in, on the average.
Thank you for yet another set of lovely TRs!
Cheers, Sumantra.
