When it comes to Qatar, I’ve most likely flown with them at least 8-10 times in my life so far.
Never on the A380 though but on the 77W, 788 and A350.
The food is pretty good, it’s a high standard airline with great food, sometimes there’s been cases where the food wasn’t to my liking but that to be expected. But overall it’s a nice meal you’ll have.
In-Flight Entertainment System:
Oryx One, that’s IFE of Qatar and it’s probably one of the best ones out there. With a wide variety of options to choose from. Movies, Songs and all the great stuff from around the world. You’ll surely find something to watch or listen to to make the time fly away.
You can’t sleep, huh… well at least try, for a long journey like this it’s good to take a nap. Let me give you a good advice to reduce jetlag. If your flight is a overnight flight then sleep and wake up the next morning in MEL. If it’s a daytime flight then maybe take a nap but not more than 3 or 4 hours. What you want to do is, sleep at your accommodation in Melbourne if you land at night time or if you land there during the day then stay awake the whole day.
Well for a ULH like this one, sitting in throughout the whole flight is pretty much deadly in the long run. One can get serious issues wih health if sitting for too long too often. One time flight may not cause any harm but you never know. The A380 is big so can wall down the aisle and stretch your legs and do some minor exercise every now and then. This is to not build up any blood clots in your body which could lead to various illnesses such as Myocardial Infarction, Stroke and many other heart related illnesses plus damages to the brain due to lack of oxygen.
The service on-board Qatar is splendid, the crew has always been kind and helpful, smiling and very professional. They’ll help you with pretty much anything you ask for. The service lives up the 5-star rating the airline has and truly shows how much they care about their passengers, about their needs in terms of comfort, food serving, and other serive related areas. They there and happy to assist you wih any inquiries you may have.
In my honest opinion I’d say that Qatar is one of the best airlines out there and you surely find a way to spend you time away. Do a little bit of everything I’ve suggested and you should be in Melbourne in no time :)
Have A Safe Flight! 😁 ✈
