I'll be flying Qatar for the first time in December and I wanted to know what I could expect.
Here are the flights:
December 22nd: QR473 ATH-DOH, QR624 DOH-DPS
December 31st: QR625 DPS-KUL
January 4th: QR625 KUL-DOH, QR472 DOH-ATH
I know the ATH flights will probably be 320s and the DPS/KUL flights 332s.
Qatar is a 5-star airline and from what I've been told the overall experience should be good, but all comments are welcome (IFE, service, meals...)
AFAIK not all Qatar 332s have PTVs, right? What are my chances of having PTVs on these pretty long flights?
Also, what is DOH like? I know a new airport is being built so this one only has 2 more years to go... Since I have long connections (around 4 hrs) I'd like to know what to expect (food, shopping...).

QR437 will be a A321 and you will not have PTV or so. Try to get a seat in row 26 which is the EMEX and offers huge legspace. Your onward flight is a A332 with a set configuration of 24C 234Y but it has PTV´s afaik.
The flights show completely full in the Amadeus so be careful with denied boarding unless you don´t care.
DPS-KUL is a A332 too and on your return back it is again a A332 but a A320 to ATH.
