Recently, my family gave me a ticket to fly to South Africa for my 70th birthday.
Although not issued as a Business Class ticket, we were assured I would be upgraded if there were seats available. I am a solo traveller and very used to doing my own thing.
Right from the start of my trip, the service from Qatar Airways was excellent, I was upgraded to a Business Class seat for each leg of the journey: Heathrow – Doha, Doha to Capetown, Johannesburg to Doha and then again home to London.

An experience of a lifetime! Not only was champagne served on arrival, I was offered a high tea, and a choice of meals and wines worthy of any top-class restaurant. Comfortable, private seating with plenty of storage and of course being able to stretch out and sleep was the icing on the top.

There is something about being a privileged Business Class passenger that makes usually tedious long-haul air travel very special and I would recommend anyone who can, to grab the opportunity if they are able to do so. I can also highly recommend Qatar Airways, their ground and flight crew were outstanding, the attention to detail amazing with personal service all the way!

    What a lovely experience! We didn’t have the treat of an upgrade when travelling to the Philippines, but I was with a youth group which included many tall people (I was the shorter granny, helping with the trip leaders’ grandchildren!) and they all said the leg room was the best they’d had in standard class. We were very impressed generally and would fly with them again.

    Excellent! Were you upgraded because you told them it was your 70th birthday?
