    Why not just have a Breath Test Like the Car ones, do it at the Check in Desk just before Boarding ,if you are over the Limit same as the Car then you forfeit your Flight!

    And No issue of any Alcohol on any Fights! Tea Coffee and Soft Drinks only there is plenty of time once you arrive at your Destination to get sozzled!

    Qatar is the last airline I would fly with. they even ran out of food on a flight from Perth to London. 24 hours and No food. Qatar airport was like.a refugee camp. that was three years ago.

    I do believe Quatr air line is an alcohol free airline.
    However you are permitted, so I have been reliably informed, to take on board small bottles of alcohol for your flight.
    They are sold at some of the airports the airline uses and made especially for them.
    Happy daze John in Oz.

    if you fly with Qatar you need to have a lot of alcohol to see you through your flight, TERRIBLE.

    Alcohol is freely available on all Qatar Airlines international flights.

    Canít complain too much about them Brian. They were no worse than qantas or any other airlines. A bit cheaper as well. The beer would have been the same exorbinate price as elsewhere. The water was. JS

    Hi John
    Qatar is the first airline I have been on that runs out of food, half way up the aisle, Sorry that's it, no more food, half the plane had some the other half had none. 24 hours with nothing to eat.
    The seats squashed up together, couldn't get my knees in jammed against the seats in front, cramped. for nigh on 24 hours, teribble, had more space on an old Dakota from Hong Kong.
    I had pre -booked seats at the front row so know idiot drops the seat right on top of us, They had a moo slim family in our seats and one of their stupid kids leaned over and threw my glass of whisky on the deck . no one cared.

    Ever since then we fly Business Class, no more Cattle Class, well worth the extra. Better service, drinks all the time and better food .and a Flat Bed to sleep on.

    A women and her child is being held in adubai prison after having a free glass of wine with her meal on a Emerites flight to Dubai and whilst in jail has been forced to clean toilets etc.
    Personally I would never fly with, or go to for any reason, an airline or country that has an Arabic connection.

    I think it is wrong when forgien companies or countries expect visitors to follow their rules and laws but when they visit other countries or use companies outside of their remit they STILL expect their rules andlaws to be followed as if they were at 'home'.

    #13.. you wouldn’t be allowed on any aircraft whatever nationality with liquid in a bottle. This applies to Qatar as well. They are not an alcohol free airline as of 3 weeks ago. The only complaint would be the same as Brian is space. however to go business class would have been an increase in 10000 dollars.for the two of us, and had to think of the beer money in the uk. Cheers JWS.
