The new site looks very nice! I like the bigger text and images, especially the 772 on the welcome page. The site is much more simple now.

The "Manage My Booking" is great, just changed our seats to bassinet seats that were simply blocked during booking despite booking with an infant.

Very, very nice - "crisp", "clean" and easy navigation... one comment through, I cannot find the "contact us" and "worldwide offices" link?

Reminds a little of the Etihad site though...

Ok, found it, its under "Help" which is a bit unusual... they need a "Contact us" link....

Just perusing though the website, its a lot more cleaner than it was before thats for sure.

But I just realized that EK and AA/DL are codesharing on flights! When did this come into effect? If you do a booking for YUL or YHZ to DXB for instance it asks for connecting airline preferance.

The QR site is terrible as is qmiles.com and beyond that their uptime is less than stellar.

Pretty much literally. Quatar Airway's website takes f o r e v e r to load even with high-speed internet. With overwhelming majority of tickets being sold online today, airline's web presence is crucial to their success. Well done Emirates for following the lead of many top notch airline websites.

Nice new route map as well.

The site looks very clean and not as cramped (before, everything was cramped into a little area).

I find www.qatarairways.com to be far too cluttered, I don't like it very much, at least EK leaves some space between the boxes.

I have just been looking at the new EK website. I went into 'Timetables' and Searched DXB-MAN. It brings up the 2 daily flights EK017 & EK019 and gives a duration of 7h 35m. It then gives a total duration of 7h 98m. WTF?

New sites are bound to have a couple glitches, give it a couple of weeks and it will probably not have that problem anymore.
