A Totally Disappointing trip to Privilege Clu

By rshantini76

My husband and I along with my 2 kids were at the ‘newly open’ Privilege Club office to redeem our QMiles. It was a total nightmare for us. My kids were running and playing around. Obviously the environment in the place was quite and no one was making any noise. Only my kids were jumping around. The waiting time was long (about an hour). Then, an elderly Arabic Couple walked into the office. They made a big fuss looking at my kids playing. First the lady used a sign language and indicated to me, please take care of the kids. So I had to pull my girl and kept her with me. She was already crying by then. .

Finally our number was called and we were at the counter. Oh the lady at the counter was the worst.
• She was just forced to sit there and do her work. NO smile and greeting and nothing. What a 5 star Airlines is this? Are we at the Privilege Club or LESS / NO Privilege at all?
• One question from me and one answer. It was totally irritating to deal with these kind of people on earth!
• When I said please mail me the details, she never even bother to respond. Never told anything about the charges / penalties.

When our number was called again, my kids started running again. The Arabic couple so happen was sitting at the next counter. This time the lady shouted, “I’m having headache, could you take your kids away”. My question is why Qatar Airways / Privilege Club can’t have a dedicated kid’s play area. At least, the kids will know what to do. I’m not so privileged to have a maid in the house too. Moreover, how much to scold and beat the kids so that they will sit down quietly?
Have anyone of you faced the same problems like me? Please share as I was very very disappointed yesterday with everyone. With the kids, the lady at the counter and also the elderly couple.

I think it was wrong that they didn't smile and act friendly but it was probably the kids frustrating everyone as they were running around.

Either way, 5 star means that they put up with it. However I can imagine that they were causing a fuss.

I have a very naughty 4 yr old boy. I understand that books and toys cant keep them entertained for long, but an office is not a place for kids. I do understand that u had no one to leave ur kids with, i also dont. but waitin for so long is torture for the kids as well as for other people!. I feel one of u shld take the kids out while the other does finishes the work.

Also i do think u need to relax a little. U only are he one saying u were disappointed with everyone, the kids.... Smile and the world will smile back at you, eevn if they dont u keep smiling!

I was in a similar poblem when I travelled alone with my 2 year old daughter. we were in a Q for Immigration check. She started to push the man infront of us saying go go. I canot restrain her much becos I was carrying a bag and other things. I apologised to that gentleman and he allowed me to go first for checking. while the immigration officer checking my travel documents my kid run to the gate. I caught her with the help of security personals.

I've noticed that your husband was with you too. Did he have to be there too or couldn't he have taken the kids for a walk or something? Its not just mum's responsibility to deal with the kids. So between the both of you, you couldn't entertain/control your own kids? BTW, Yes I have kids

My son is just 2 yrs and daughter is 3+++. On Saturday actually slapped her and kept her with me. I refuse to let her run after the first warning. My son as ussual, I gave him one slap and he cried. After few minutes started again.

Don't get me wrong, as a mother I want to discipline them and don't want them to run 'Amok'. How much to smack?

I feel better to stay away from everyone else.

She is coming here in October and probably will be annoying everyone in the Qatar Airways Privelege Club office. She sure annoys me.

Btw I love Qatar Airways. I think it really rocks and is the best airline in the world. And I think the flight crew girls are real pretty. That's what I like best about QA.

how old are your kids rshantini if you dont mind me asking?

if they are either 2 , 3 or maybe 4 years old believe me it will be really difficult to explain discipline to them.

and i sympathize with you because ive been in the same situation before (got 4 kids). i believe that you were really trying to discipline your kids but there's only so much you can do. have patience, this stage in kids life will eventually pass away.

By tallg• 13 years 10 months ago.

Read what I said properly people. I didn't say kids are like dogs. I said that kids are like dogs in the respect that if you don't reward/discipline them at the time they do something they'll forget what they did.

I could equally say that kids are like dogs because in the respect they are both mammals. I'm comparing a specific trait, not saying that kids are like dogs full stop.

By rshantini76• 13 years 10 months ago.

It's really a difficult topic.

Lesson learnt :

1) Next time i will not post this kind of topic

2) Take care of my little angels.

But pls don't equal them to dogs. I love my kids.. and at the same time will teach them good manners.

All comments are great and nothing taken personnel

Tallg, kids are not dogs!!!!! Ohhhhh u made me so angry with that, nowadays we love dogs more than humans... And Alexa, I have just one son who is 10 months old and he's adorable, he listens to me even if he's just a baby, he's very smart and can understand everything. But sometimes when he's sleepy or just bored of staying too much in one place he will start to be fussy, he doesn't cry at all though. And at this age there's no way of talking about discipline, but I will not slap him in public when he will be older, yet for sure I will leave the place if he misbehaves in any way.

oryx, ur perfectly right! kids start to jump around because they want parent's attention. I hate it when I see parents ignoring their kids that just keep calling mum, mum, start pulling the sleeves and so on...just answer to the kid and eventually teach him not to interrupt when ur talking to someone else.

By Oryx• 13 years 10 months ago.
Oryx

Well a couple of times i have gone up to a hysterical child and very nicely asked what the matter is....

do you know they shut up.... its just attention...they are bored and fed up and being ignored.

By stress_in_babel• 13 years 10 months ago.
stress_in_babel

Alexa, sorry but I don't agree with punishing children in front of other stranger people, I think it's lowering their selfesteem. In my country we have a saying; wash all the dirty clothes in ur own house, well, it doesn't sound that good in english but anyway, I think we should wait until home and them go to drastic measures. Few days ago I was in a shop and there was one arabic lady talking on her mobile and she had two kids who were just teasing each other and being fussy, not creating too much problems though; all of the sudden she stops talking on her mobile just to slap them and then she carries on. I was so shocked I couldn't believe it, I would definitelly not slap my kid in public, but rather I would try to make him interested in my activities, such as shopping, so he will not be completely bored when he comes with me.

By Oryx• 13 years 10 months ago.

To paraphrase Alexa... her prince sprog knows that there are consequences to actions....

great...... prince sprog is thus learning at a young age to be a responsible human being and consider his place in the world and effects upon it...

Andrew, I totally agree with u. 100% It's indeed very bothering when kids are rude and let's admitt it, kids here in Qatar excell at being rude. No ofence to anyone, just my humble opinion based on what I've seen and experienced myself.

But no, I wouldn't go and tell the parents in their face u know, ur kids are bothering me, it's not my way, I would probably try to ignore. Especially if they are not disturbing too much, I think we can be more friendly, the world lacks more smiling faces.

By Oryx• 13 years 10 months ago.
Oryx

There is nothing lovlier than seeing happy children....

running around, playing and having fun...

in the PLAYGROUND!!!! (or similar)

There is a time and a place for everything ...

Andrews is right...

I go out to a restaurant without child facilities...why should my evening be disrupted by kids running riot?

(and I mean riot not a little sounds)

the kids run around crazy mainly because the parents give them no attention...

It is poor parenting i dont like not kids!

By andrew11121• 13 years 10 months ago.
andrew11121

Am I just sounding like an old fogey dreaming of the good ol days when I say...

When we were kids there was no way we'd be allowed to behave in public the way the kids here do.

The kids who just wander around the supermarket picking up and eating whatever they want, right off the shelves, without getting a nod from mum?

Or the kids who hold court at the dinner table, expecting that everyone and everything should revolve around them and their happiness, screaming for every little desire that they have?

Geez... If I did that as a kid I'd have got a swift clip over the ear. And I wouldn't have done it twice. When we were out, we behaved, and we knew what would happen if we didn't.

By tallg• 13 years 10 months ago.
tallg

Agree with Oryx. Bad service or not, it's irresponsible to take your kids somewhere and let them run amok. They're YOUR kids, take responsibility for them and consider others around you. You can't expect every place you take them to have a dedicated kids area.

By MollyfromCanada• 13 years 10 months ago.
MollyfromCanada

with some of these comments. Nothing bothers me more than parents who use public places as playgrounds for their kids. Was totally po'ed last weekend at the Bank when a mother let her two kids yell, scream, run up and down in front of customers and couldn't believe it when she got annoyed when asked to contain them...I mean..duh??? Your kids - your total responsibility to make them behave in public places or do us all a favour and leave them at home.

By andrew11121• 13 years 10 months ago.
andrew11121

If I was enjoying a meal and a mother came in with her baby, I wouldn't care.

If the baby made a few gurgling sounds or clapped her hands, I wouldn't care.

But when a child sits at the table, banging away with cutlery, plates, toys, yells, screams, and starts wandering around the restaurant like she owns the place, I get angry.

I YELL AT THE CHILD.

If the mother thinks that her precious little baby has the disturb all the other patrons while she sits there IN SILENCE, she has another thing coming.

I cannot stand this attitude that parents cannot and will not discipline their children. You see it all the time, entire families sitting at restaurants pandering to the needs of their little 3 year old who is yelling at mum "I'm thirsty.... I want a coke... I want to go home... where's my teddy"... Meanwhile mum just sits there, silently, doing nothing.

Thankfully I've found cafes that don't tolerate children that disturb the peace for other diners.

As I said, I've got no problem with children in public, but for some reason the children here are simply intolerable.

By stress_in_babel• 13 years 10 months ago.
stress_in_babel

Alexa, maybe he is quiet because he's an only child. I was the same when I was a kid, the best ever, but when I got together with my cousin we used to make a party. :-)

Anyways, I didn't say kids should misbehave and this is normal, but sometimes there is just nothing to do, u can't punish them right there on the spot, u can't force them to stay still for an hour. God knows I'm an adult and I can't stay in one place that much.

What bothered me the most was the attitude of the arabic lady that told her to make the kids shut up. She had no right to say that and it was very rude. As long as there is no sign on the door no kids allowed there's nothing she can comment about.

By stress_in_babel• 13 years 10 months ago.
stress_in_babel

the thing is that I am a mother also, though my baby is only 11 months, I like to take him with me everywhere. today I was at a restaurant and he started to scream and clap his hands and everybody was looking at me like I'm disturbing them, we have to learn how to accept our children, when we were young we were doing the same.

I've redeemed my miles twice and have got excellent service. Infact the first time the customer executive called up her supervisor to ask on the "VERY HIGH taxes" that i was paying for my wife's and my redemption tickets.

The second time around i knew about the high taxes so didn't bother.

As for kids, whenever you encounter a line/token system for some obligation consider not taking your kids along since you cannot control them. Next you'll be asking for kids play areas in Banks, Insurance Companies,Post Offices etc etc. hahahahahahaha.

On the other hand there are couple of pillars in the QA office - maybe tying them up to one of em would be an option - nahh its too cruel. Just kidding :-) I cannot believe that you cannot control your kids - "i scold them but they call child control on me, what to do" hahahahahaha

Seriouly speaking, rshantini76, you should have stayed at home and asked your husband you get your tickets or vice versa.

By anonymous• 13 years 10 months ago.

Well, two issues here. Qatar Airways not treating loyal customers with the right amount of service, and parents who seem to think it's okay for noisy and disruptive kids to run amok in an office.

Okay, so I take your point about rude Qatar Airways staff, but seriously, why is it their responsiblity to babysit your children?

If I was there and your kids were being disruptive and loud, I'd tell them to shut up too. Why are parents so affraid of their children?

Why are parents terrified of the idea of telling their precious little princes and princesses to sit down and shut up?

Kids issue aside, the service level of Qatar Airways - Ground staff is not up to for a compliment. Not only in the Priviledge club office, everywhere. I had a very bad time at the transit counter in the airport, and the mistake was done by their staff in the AIRPORT of origin - I did not even received an apology rather, when they finally arrange for hotel accommodation, after 24 hours, they pointedly told me that it is a favor. I made a complain, not even a reply. As for Manager, when I asked to see the airport Manager, she was like few meters away from the counter, she keep sending her trainee back and forth like a messenger. I had a Priviledge club - gold. Obviously now, I don't.

From then on, if i have other alternative, i travel other airline.

Do you know the Business and First Class lounge has a kids play area? As i told earlier i had to take the kids because there were no one around to take care of them!

Dear Oryx

I know it's not a good place to take the kids and neither asking the staff to look after the kids. At least have a play area. The kids can be there playing. I brough along books and toys. But the kids time on all these things are so short. What else can the kids do? Sit like all of us one hour. Definetly not reasonable!

Dear baldrick2dogs

It's new office block open on the D Ring near the Mall roundabout.

I agree with u. The office Near the Airport is the best. I have been there a few times and no complaints. Even to the old Privilege Club also, No complain.

By baldrick2dogs• 13 years 10 months ago.
baldrick2dogs

The place to complain is not here. If it happens again, ask to see their manager. He'll be sat in an office somewhere at the back, oblivious to what is happening in the store front. If nobody tells him anything he assumes all is well and will continue like that.

I will have to agree with Oryx on this. Why would you want to take your kids to an office? You have admitted it yourself that kids were running around and I am sure that is an understatement. If I was waiting with the Arab families as well, I'd have said the same thing.

Are you serious about having play area for kids at an office? I can hardly imagine what the scene would be like if all our clients brought in their kids along and we needed to dedicate an area from our office just for kids :)

She is totally right. I had a similar experience myself couple of times. The staff is really non-cooperative at all. Most of the time the staff is on training even and they dont any thing. I dont know how come so called a 5 star airline keeps that kind of an image in the market.

Atleast they should welcome you with a smile and should show some interest to help you. Both of which is missing. I hate people who just go to work to get salaries. I hope some day some one takes notice of the counter staff attitude issue.

Do you think that was a good place to take your kids?

did you take a toy with you for them...

your children look after them - instead of having them 'jumping around' non-play areas...

what a nightmare for the staff and other customers having your brats running ferral for an hour

I also having trouble with the lady staff there. She was so rude and a person like that should not sit on the frontline like that. I learned my lesson and would like to recommend you to deal with the HQ (near airport) next time. Their service there is much better.
