    Qatar is great until you have an issue like ed bugs in business class !! My husband and I flew Qatar to Indonesia. On the way back we splurged on a business class upgrade for the 16 hour flight from Doha to DFW. I noticed I was itchy towards the end of the flight. When I got home, I was covered in bites. I notified the airline immediately but they took two week to respond to me. I even have pictures of myself in a bathing suit the afternoon before boarding the flights and right after getting home covered in bites. I went to the doctor who confirmed it was bed bugs. Thousands of dollars later they didn’t offer anything and it still continues to be a public safety hazard and I feel helpless.

      Hi Cristina, I’m so sorry to hear that! I think you’ve taken the right steps in documenting it and I would continue to reach out to the airline – definitely need to get that plane DEEP cleaned and prevent that from happening again.
