We are flying via the new airport in Doha and wonder what it is like.

Inside it's like Dubai, but smaller. Outside its sandy desert. I have not been to the city. Just another airport

It's a bit shit. It's new and shiny but there's not a lot there in terms of food or shops and there's barely any seating.

Hamad International ?? Its an awesome airport.
Gutted we can't go through Doha now, and gave to deal with Dubai airport, which I fecking hate.

It lovely inside. Very big and never feels too crowded.
A few places to eat which are quite expensive.
There a few play places for the kids which kept them well occupied.
Not many seats about other than at the gate.

Lovely., airy , well designed and not at all busy. The most amazing sculptures which are actually children's playgrounds.
They do tours of Doha if you have a long layover.

Dull as dishwater with very little to do. I flew to Doha once a week for years so I experienced old and new. The costa is ok though.
