Expectations matter. They shape our experiences and can make flights fun or a total letdown.🤔
Take this business class cabin, for examples. It's on an Airbus A350-900 that Qatar Airways had leased from LATAM.
Each seat is lie-flat so you can get comfy and take a nap. However, it's a 2-2-2 cabin layout with very little privacy other than the fact that you have more space between you and other passengers.
If you want direct aisle access and don't want anyone climbing over you to get to the lavatory or stretch their legs, you need to sit in the middle section (no window views for you).

Did you hear angels singing?
The glorious Qsuites from Qatar Airways on the A350-1000 are freaking amazing! A 1-2-1 cabin layout means that everyone has a lie-flat seat with direct aisle access. In fact, each seat comes with a door for maximum privacy.😎
Now, this is where expectations come into play.
If you book a flight expecting Qsuites but get an older 2-2-2 layout, it'll be hard to be anything but disappointed.
While a last-minute aircraft swap could catch you off guard, you generally know what to expect when you book. By calibrating your expectations, you can still have a great time even if it's not the best seat on the planet.
In fact, these pictures are from a trip I took earlier this year. I had an amazing Qsuites flight to Doha before connecting to Sri Lanka on the older layout.
Guess what? Qatar stilled served Tattinger Rosé champagne, the crew was still fantastic, and the food was still great on my connecting flight.🥂
How have expectations impacted your travel (flight or destination)?

Barcelona, the cosmopolitan capital of Spain’s Catalonia region, is known for its art and architecture. The fantastical Sagrada Família church and other modernist landmarks designed by Antoni Gaudí dot the city. Museu Picasso and Fundació Joan Miró feature modern art by their namesakes. City history museum MUHBA, includes several Roman archaeological sites.
Founded as a Roman city, in the Middle Ages Barcelona became the capital of the County of Barcelona. After merging with the Kingdom of Aragon, Barcelona continued to be an important city in the Crown of Aragon as an economic and administrative centre of this Crown and the capital of the Principality of Catalonia. Barcelona has a rich cultural heritage and is today an important cultural centre and a major tourist destination.
Barcelona is a major cultural, economic, and financial centre in southwestern Europe, as well as the main biotech hub in Spain. As a leading world city, Barcelona's influence in global socio-economic affairs qualifies it for global city status.
The Barri Gòtic (Catalan for "Gothic Quarter") is the centre of the old city of Barcelona.Barcelona won the 1999 RIBA Royal Gold Medal for its architecture.
#MONREALDREAMS // Parte do território da Dinamarca, as Ilhas Faroe são um destino perfeito para os amantes de natureza. Localizado no Oceano Atlântico, entre a Islândia e Escócia, o arquipélago conta com 18 ilhas, e nem todas são habitadas. Por conta do frio extremo, os telhados das casas costumam ser cobertos com grama, como forma de aquecer os cômodos, dando um toque especial também para a paisagem, onde as casas parecem fazer parte das montanhas. As ilhas são perfeitas também para fazer trekking e ver os inúmeros lagos e cachoeiras, transformando o arquipélago em um cenário de filme.

Of all of the places I’ve visited so far (and there’ve been to „a few“ 😉 ) Madrid is my favourite one!
I think the first sentences I’ve learned in Spanish were: “Un copa de vino, porfavor!” & “Una copa mas!” 😉
This is MY favourite city, doesn’t have to be yours, but as it might…’cause I’m a woman and ALWAYS right. 🤣
Like it says on one T-shirt „I don’t need Google, my wife knows everything. “🤣
I stumbled upon Madrid by accident, really, on my way to Marrakech, just a stopover on my way.
Boy, oh boy, had I known better! That was it, I was hooked!
On the pic is the view from Palacio de Cibeles.

𝐃𝐞𝐬𝐭𝐢𝐧𝐚𝐭𝐢𝐨𝐧 : This picture is from our trip to Turkey. This beautiful skiing resort was located nearly 2 hours from Istanbul (we cannot recall the name).
𝐄𝐱𝐩𝐞𝐫𝐢𝐞𝐧𝐜𝐞: Resort was so pretty. We used a chair lift to get to the skiing area. There was a cafe for hot coffee. We didn’t ski as we didn’t go prepared, it was kinda last minute thing. Unfortunately the travel will require a car, fortunately enough car rentals are not expensive also the drive is quite smooth.
𝗪𝐢𝐥𝐥 𝐰𝐞 𝐯𝐢𝐬𝐢𝐭 𝐚𝐠𝐚𝐢𝐧? Honestly speaking we haven’t been to any other ski resort than this one so we have nothing to compare it to. However if we are in Istanbul again we will defining the visit it 💯 but first we need to find out the name of this place 😅😅
𝐓𝐫𝐚𝐯𝐞𝐥 𝐭𝐢𝐩: If you guys ever plan to visit Turkey make sure you make most of the surrounding town.
