Qatar Or Etihad To PEK?

Tue Sep 14, 2010 4:00 pm

hi,
next summer my wife and i are going to beijng from italy.
i've already booked on qatar airways in J from Rome at 2000 Euros. yesterday i discovered an offer with etihad on the same route for 1600 euros.
Considering the enthusiastic reviews on skytrax for qatar and, on the other hand, the lower price with etihad, what do you suggest?

If the price were the same, I would say do Qatar...but 400 euro is quite a big chunk of change...you will still get a great experience, and for 20% cheaper, I would take Etihad.

Quoting hydargos (Thread starter):

I would go for QR as they are exceptional of the big three in the region.

Go for Etihad, both are great airlines, QR might be a bit better but if your saving 400 euros Etihad all the way.

Based on my experiences, I prefer EY (and EK, for that matter) to QR, and when combined with a substantially lower price I'd definately choose EY.

Yes I guess the saving is worth it, however QR in my mind is the better carrier out of all of them.
