Al Sawfa First Class Lounge

Al Sawfa is the signature first class lounge of Qatar Airways. A first class ticket with miles can give us the entry to this Lounge

(Date of Visit 2 December, 2018)

Al Sawfa is the signature first class lounge of Qatar Airways. It can only be  accessed if you hold a First class ticket departing from Doha with Qatar /One  World partner or you are in transit with arrival flight is First class of Qatar and more than 5 hr duration

Access to Al Sawfa Lounge
The First class ticket of Qatar are among the most expensive ticket and second  option is booking with miles but then also usual taxes are USD 80-100 range. The  cheapest tax I explored was from Khartoum, Sudan to Doha which was USD 8 and  40000 British Airways (BA) Avios points. For this sector the Flat Bed regular  Business Class seat of Qatar was named as First Class. So Khartoum – Doha sector  of Qatar had Economy Class and First Class. The Points required for this sector  was 40000 British Airways (BA) Points for First Class ticket and further 12500  points for Doha – Seychelles Economy class. Sudan and Seychelles were in my  visit list for the trip so I booked a Miles ticket Khartoum – Doha (First Class) and  Doha – Seychelles (Economy Class) in a single ticket from British Airways call  centre consuming 52500 Avios (BA points)

The flight time for Khartoum to Doha was approx 3 hrs earlier but after the  restriction of Saudi Arab for airspace usage to Qatar Airways the new route was 6 hr 15 mins. Since the arrival flight was more than 5 hrs long we qualified for usage  of Al Sawfa Lounge in transit time of 3hr 50 min although our connecting flight to Seychelles was in Economy Class

The Luxury of Al Sawfa
Every inch of this lounge was a luxury. Taste of food, separate kids room, museums, paintings, fountain, business rooms, multiple family rooms, private rooms with beds to rest and a duty free shop inside. Only the spa was at additional cost. The lounge is among the most exclusive and best globally.
