Ok, newbie inquiring about Qatar Airways. We have put down our deposit for our trip for June of 2018. We will be hunting with Roy van der Merwe and his Otjandaue Safaris in Namibia. We will be flying out of Houston (IAH) and would prefer to fly into Windhoek (WDH) with only one stop. Qatar Airways now has that flight at a great price, $1040 roundtrip, per person, with a 9 hour layover in Doha. Looking online at their baggage regulations, looks like we are allowed two checked bags apiece, up to 70 pounds each, with a size restriction of 62 inches. The 70 pounds is nice and the 62 inches is pretty much the industry standard. As of today, we have NOT purchased airline tickets. We are not traveling with firearms, archery equipment only, but our SKB double bow cases are over the 62 inches. I know we won't have any issues with the weight, but I am concerned about the oversize bow cases. Has anyone flown with this airline? If so, any issues, good or bad? How was the flight service? Any recommendations? We are planning on staying in the hotel that is within the airport at Doha for the layover. Again, I welcome any input. It's our first trip to Africa and we're really looking forward to it.
