    Qatar A350 Business Inagural Return FRA-DOH

    Heres my report on that "special" flight I took on my way to India.

    I flew AA KBDL-KPHL on CRJ. Then KPHL-EDDF on A330-200 and arrived at 6:15am on Jan 15th!
    We landed on the newest runway with City passing at our right!


    The first commercial A350 was to arrive at 12:15pm....Plenty of time to hit the Lounge....
    QR shares Air Canada Lounge @ Frankfurt.






    After an excellent breakfast & couple of hours of rest.... went down ...Gate 41 was right under the lounge! There was no one yet...










    By 11:30 crowds started gathering... very festive atmosphere for Frankfurt based QR team members. Just bout all of QR family was there!
    Hors d'oeuvre + Champagne cocktails started and were served till we departed at 15:30!!




    And to add... awesome live beats of Qatari songs!


    And QR67 pulled in at gate 41 at 12:30



    First few passengers ....you might know them!


    Actually believe Sam and few other were right behind them! Did manage to meet him and 3 other enthusiasts for few mins before I boarded.


    Now official pose with the crew + another enthusiast who decided 48 hours ago to travel for the flight!!


    Soon it was time to board.... for QR68 FRA-DOH








    Awesome sunset and then sun peeking under the clouds as we climbed to cruise alt.




    QR's Dinner on Demand Service...












    Almost sleep after an awesome dinner...


    First A350 flight for the Frankfurt crew is in the books!



    Overall..... Awesome does not do justice to describe the atmosphere & energy @ QR gate at Frankfurt. The service abroad was impeccable. It was one of the highlight of my trip......however there is more and will post 2nd part of the return leg on a different carrier & machine soon!

    Cheers
    Raj
