In order to get a free hotel, I was willing to have a 36-hour layover in Doha
During the summer vacation of 2018, I decided to travel to Indonesia. This time, I chose Qatar Airways as my airline to return to Indonesia. However, there were no direct flights from Stockholm to Jakarta, so typically, this flight would have a layover in Doha. This flight usually takes around 18 hours, which is why layovers are common for this route.
Why did I choose a 36-hour layover instead of the 2-hour layover with Qatar Airways? Well, at that time, Qatar Airways was offering a free stay in a 5-star hotel for passengers with layovers longer than 12 hours.
