This was a bit of a roller coater airfare booking, as I booked before the Gulf crisis happened in June when Egypt stated that Qatar could not land in Egypt.
I decided to stick with Qatar as I had a very cheap fare and they promised to re route me free of charge.
I did check other flights as soon as the crisis happened and for some time after with other airlines and the cost of a flight was around $600 more than I had paid.
I made quite a few calls to Qatar as the crisis kept getting longer and longer, they were always very efficient and understanding.
As my dates came closer I decided to just take any rerouting that was available.
I ended up flying from Doha to Beirut and then on to Cairo, the trip over was very long but not their fault and anyway I survived.
I had better transit times on the way home, so I was pleased.
The service, aircraft and staff were all wonderful. I can see why they receive so many awards.
The food was the best airline food I have ever had.
I have no complaints about anything and they are now my preferred airline.
I will definitely use them again because even under horrible circumstances they really looked after me.
