Following ᴄʟᴏsᴇly after “Should I fly with Emirates or Etihad,” “but what about Qᴀᴛᴀʀ Airways” is the next most frequent query we receive regarding air travel. To be fair, this analogy is probably more accurate now. Although the two airlines are located in separate nations, Qᴀᴛᴀʀ Airways resembles Emirates much more than Etihad in terms of size, product quality, and destinations served.
Prior to the political spat between the GCC nations, Qᴀᴛᴀʀ Airways had earned our loyalty by providing outstanding value for the short additional 40-minute flight from the UAE. Qᴀᴛᴀʀ has provided excellent value for money, stopped charging for entry visas, and even offered free hotel nights to travelers who are just stopping over.
Dubai’s airline, Emirates, was founded in 1985 and operates flights out of DXB airport. The national airline of Qᴀᴛᴀʀ, created in 1993, operates flights from DOH – Hamad International Airport.
Before you fly – Emirates v Qᴀᴛᴀʀ
The bigger airline is Emirates, but just marginally. While Qᴀᴛᴀʀ’s fleet is estimated to be 228 aircraft, flying a variety of Airbus and Boeing aircraft, they now fly a fleet of 268 Airbus A380 and Boeing 777 aircraft. On SeatGuru, you can see exactly which aircraft fly which routes. While Qᴀᴛᴀʀ now serves 150 locations, Emirates currently serves over 140 in 85 different countries.
Today’s evaluation will concentrate on what each airline has to offer in economy class. Here is a thorough evaluation of Emirates, and here is one for Qᴀᴛᴀʀ Airways Economy Class.
