On Tuesday I will be running a report from my visit to the Qatar Airways lounge at the new Hamad International airport in Doha.

I thought I’d use a post today to show you a couple of random things from the rest of Hamad International.

Random shot no. 1:

Hamad International Qatar Doha concourse

Yes, you fly for 6 hours and you still find yourself surrounded by a WH Smith and a Camden Food Company.  It’s just like the East Midland Trains platforms at St Pancras!

Random shot no. 2:

Word fail me here.  I imagine a conversation:

“Well, we’ve just spent $17 billion building one of the biggest and most expensive airports in the world, and we only ran five years over schedule.  We need a suitable piece of sculpture for the main concourse, something to show the world that Qatar is on the map.”

“I’ve got an idea, leave it to me …..”
