This is a well timed connection, at least from a stressed biz travellers point of view, so well timed that there is close to no time in between for the next flight.
Passport check works swiftly but no chance to use a lounge here.
Well, I feel sorry with the Pristina travellers and the thousand kids, 3.05 hours late on "Germania" and also "Emirates" is not on the scheduled track today, 3.20 hours late for Dubai. Hopefully not a gulf problem in general.
What about this machine at gate H18

 photo IMGP6372_zpsef2b4ad8.jpg
Interesting to follow the call by the gate staff when I arrived.
All pax with an boarding pass not issued by QR itself should contact the counter.
Well, that´s certainly me and so far with the cooperation this way.
Two or three pax only doing the same way like me, all the others started here, astonishing.
Well, nice talking with the middle aged gate agent shows me the two seats beside occupied, not to my greatest pleasure. But also offered me another chance for more space upfront. Three seats for me with the middle and the aisle blocked, One World status works perfectly here.
Well, it looks like nice, I need a couple more pictures

And this is also a premiere for me

 photo IMGP6376_zps3572c5ac.jpg
The very first leg on the 787.
A warm welcome to A7-BCA, a pardon with no individual name just for this time.
In the air with Qatar since 07.12.2012 and also the very first line number with the company. 9 examples are in the actual fleet.
Here is an interesting story with the plane:

Boarding now, ok, let´s go
 photo IMGP6379_zps1d1aeaeb.jpg
 photo IMGP6380_zps5ad1ad70.jpg
Yes, this engine looks like huge
 photo IMGP6384_zpsf1d463cf.jpg
 photo IMGP6385_zps733c9340.jpg
Also from this point of view
 photo IMGP6386_zps16d680e7.jpg
 photo IMGP6387_zpse7121396.jpg
And also inside it looks like modern with the mixed red fabric seats, spacious and clean

 photo IMGP6389_zpsd60cc092.jpg
2.50 pm, short ahead to schedule,  5.10 hours Dreamliner style by "Qatari". Departure from the 4000 meters "Two-Six-Left", leaving 4 cloudy but dry degrees at the "Flughafen München - Franz Josef Strauss".
The load is 90%, biz and others, VFR maybe, well mixed and
bulkhead typical legroom.
A german middle aged guy joins me on the aisle seat.
Sure ok, he´s on a biz trip for Hongkong and Australia, interesting talking on the way

FA´s serving my seat are a nice middle aged south east asian woman and a young asian male, nice too.
There is also a magazine on offer and some entertainment

 photo IMGP6393_zpsa7b1b792.jpg
Cockpit crew is an European "طيار", maybe italian with a very short info later on not that far from Doha, 10 till 15 minutes holding, weather and traffic related.
Routing is Budapest-Bukarest-Bagdad-Kuwait, no flightlevel info.
On the way we are
 photo IMGP6394_zps119f0989.jpg
 photo IMGP6395_zps142053ea.jpg
Well, the IFE is good, good for some issues today.
And I´am sure all the others on this plane are spanish native speakers, what is programmed in advance.
For real, it was not possible to change the language
 photo IMGP6396_zps670697ce.jpg
 photo IMGP6397_zpse5888f28.jpg
Till a complete restart and some snacks
 photo IMGP6398_zps21e64586.jpg
 photo IMGP6399_zps24e27f1b.jpg
But my usual point of interest shows a black, dark page, only after the restart.
No flight tracking available. The lead FA was at my seat and confirmed that they are somewhat lucky to bring the system to work with the languages changeable. But on the other hand side the inflight map doesn´t work and he don´t want to restart the system again not knowing what´s the result.
So far with my first 787 impression

 photo IMGP6401_zpsddf26d17.jpg
But mood lighting works!

Full cabin view

 photo IMGP6405_zpsb6c43390.jpg
And mood lighting on the engine looks like also nice, isn´t it?
 photo IMGP6406_zps27896477.jpg
 photo IMGP6407_zpsc1532a39.jpg
Well, modern style, ok, but I prefer the menu card on paper anyway or should I collect the screen?
 photo IMGP6408_zps553d2478.jpg
 photo IMGP6409_zps63ee1fe2.jpg
Well, as usual, I don´t even eat something from the left hand side, right hand side is good for me!. And soon thereafter we are at the "Doha International Airport
مطار الدوحة الدولي" with it´s massive 4570 meters runway "One-Five". It´s 10.40 pm here, what is 20 minutes late and also means 8.40 pm in Germany
 photo IMGP6410_zps337571c6.jpg
 photo IMGP6411_zps854b9aeb.jpg
Where the weather, remember the information short ahead to approach, is exactly what you expect from the middle east. 24 degrees, ok so far, but it´s raining cats and dogs and something else and the airport should better invest some money in a fleet of transfer boats to ship the pax from the plane to the terminal than these useless busses!

A short night at the lounge ahead now and further for the mountains!.
