The New DOH Hamad Int'l Airport

Talk about a wow!  What a spectacular new facility that catapults DOH to the top of the big three Gulf airports.  Big, spacious and open with all the bells and whistles that make this one of the easiest international connection airports.
 
 
 
A look back at our A340-600.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
High marks for excellent signage throughout the terminal.
 
 
 
With premium class transfer screening lanes that had no lines.
 
 
 
 
 
 
With a main central area with fingers that go to the various concourses, after a few drinks vaguely reminiscent of Pittsburgh, but obviously on a far grander and spectacular scale.
 
 
 
 
The million dollar teddy bear.
 
 
 
 
 
That's what I'm looking for.
 
 
 
To a grand escalator to the skies with agents manning the base.  This must be the place.  I inquired about the First Class Lounge and and told that unfortunately, it is not yet completed.  But I am most welcome in the Business Class Lounge.  LIttle did I know that Qatar's DOH Business Class lounge is better than most other airlines' First Class lounges.
