| I was travelling from Manchester to Kuala Lumpur via Doha with Qatar Airways, but on-board a couple of Boeing 787 it was tolerable but wasn't great. The legroom isn't great for people over six foot and trying to get past another passenger is very difficult (and the people next to me would not stand up) I was in the window seat 15/16A, which was nice (especially for sleeping) and the large window is great but had even less leg space due to the presence of a large silver IFE box. The seat recline was quite useless - it didn't seem to stay so you had to keep pressure leaning back (I don't normally recline anyway out of respect for others) Whenever the person in front reclined I was very cramped and couldn't move much - forget about accessing the aisle. Having 9 seats in each row is quite a lot in reality, it can result in some armrest battles with your neighboring passengers from slightly narrow seats. Maybe 8 would have given a better customer experience. Ironically my first flight to Doha had just 50 people on-board so I didn't have a problem there but my connections from then onward were much busier. Finally, there was a very annoying high pitched noise throughout the whole flight, which is either from the lights or the IFE boxes. It was rhythmic and once I had noticed it I couldn't ignore it sadly. On both of my Boeing 787 connections this noise was present so I know it wasn't this specific flight. Aside from the obligatory safety leaflet and an in-flight magazine (didn't know people still read these, hah) the seat storage was decent. On the whole I thought Qatar had very good service, all of the crew were lovely but the seat and strange noise let it down for me.
