I was at first very worried flying the Qatar B787 since there are so many reports saying how bad and horrible they are. I braved it because QR had both good fare and schedule for my trip. Maybe I had a very low expectation, but I found Qatar B787 to be quite pleasant (I fit comfortably in my seat -- I am 1m80/78kg-- and though there is that annoying IFE box under the seat it was not as huge as I had expected it from reading other QR 787 trip reports). The thing I did not like was that the seats recline too much (for the pitch they have on their 787s) meaning that you really have no choice but to recline yourself when the pax in front decides to recline. As for the service, I find QR food ok but portion seems to be smaller compared to EK.
Did you have your luggage checked through by GA or did you have to check in again at CGK?
I had a two hour layover in DOH before catching my connecting QR flight to CDG (A380) and found Doha airport early in the morning too crowded (long lines in toilets and I tried several toilets) which was not the case on the way over (the transit was at midnight on the outbound)(still prefer it over DXB though). Cheers!
