From Malaga to Doha to Bali it’s a quite comfortable connection even from Helsinki Doha Asia has a good connection, even though Helsinki has 141 connecting flights to all over the world and prices are competitive.

What makes difference in travelling is business class. Especially if you have higher level loyalty cards like Platinum card or Oneworld Emerald! I and my family own different platinum or gold members cards and this gives us the perfect opportunity to visit even many lounges in the same airport.

The difference between Business and First Class or Premium lounges is higher quality food, drinks, and services.  For example: In First Class lounges you have champagne, food is more selective, a’la carte menu dinner or lunch.  Business lounges have a buffet menu and very bigs sitting space.

In London, British Airway lounge has a’la carte lunch and dinner. In London airport, all lounges are quite good and have a high-quality level and wide range of services.

In Helsinki, Finland premium lounge has a sauna, amazing breakfast with rice pie, porridge, healthy vitamin shots, and rose champagne.

Doha, Qatar, Qatar airlines, Oneworld

In Doha, Qatar has something to everyone, long connections relaxing areas, restaurant area and buffet menu and a wide range of drinks (i didn’t find champagne) 

The worst lounge I have been was in Malaga, Spain. Oneworld, Staralliance they all use same one Business lounge. It closes early, no food, just some snacks, cheap alcohol, and Spanish wine.

In the Next blog, I will tell my experiences with Star Alliance and Emirates.
Kind Regards
