Haneda Lounge food poisoning when flying Qatar
To anyone who can help, I have a question which I hope someone can chime in on.
A few days ago I flew from Tokyo Haneda to Doha on Qatar Airways with a 15 hour layover and then a connecting flight. At Tokyo I went to their contract lounge where I ate some food. I unfortunately got food poisoning from the lounge and on my flight from Tokyo to Doha (which is about 12 hours long), I kept throwing up which started after some turbulence.
After arriving in Doha I went to a hospital where I got medications and was forced to book a room at the transit hotel at Doha airport, where I stayed until my connecting flight.
My question is whether I should complain to Qatar Airways or the lounge at Tokyo Haneda as well (which is a contract lounge)? Should I expect compensation? If so, from where and how much? (For the record, i was in business class, incase that should affect my compensation amount).
I’d start with the lounge in Tokyo. Good luck!
