Just arrived in Doha, Qatar, on Qatar Airways and I have to say, it was probably the best long-haul flight of my life.
Being in business class always make things better, but you could tell the entire operation was run well. The cabin crew was fantastic -- friendly, attentive, etc. The food was just as good. And there's no substitute for fully flat beds. Extra bonus: we arrived well over an hour early. If only all flights could be like that.
Extra extra bonus: I happened to be sitting next to the Obama family. Not Barack, of course, but his half-brother Malik from Kenya. He was traveling back from D.C. with his wife and young son and daughter. Super friendly guy. He was talking about how cold D.C. was for the inauguration and how he was too wiped out to go to any of the inaugural balls.
