Expat exploits in Qatar

Keeping the silver

1 Comment

We are spending a short break out of Doha in Kerala. We flew Qatar Airways. As a silver card holder, that gave us access to the quiet Al Maha lounge at the airport with free food and drink. The downside of the lounge is that it has a transparent ceiling. Directly above is one of the huge advertising screens which endlessly reflected and flashed glowing colours down into the lounge.

I needed to fly anywhere with Qatar Airways before 31 December to keep my frequent flyer status, so the flight to Trivandrum was all I needed to keep my silver card and be able test my susceptibility to photosensitive seizures.

At boarding time we headed to the gate as economy passengers, but boarded the plane upgraded to Business class. A really nice way to start the New Year holiday.

Happy New Year to you all…

  1. Kerala’s not a bad destination to keep your silver status. Did you go to the Backwaters? It’s in my bucket list.
