Default Transit in Doha

I'm trying to book a tix from LHR to SIN with a 45min transit in Doha. Wonder if that's possible.. seems like Qatar's allowing such a tight connection. Anyone has got experience with that?

With the current DOH set-up of bus transfers, you would probably need a straight transfer to your next flight. Should be no problem though, they should have somebody waiting for you when you get off the plane. Which class of service are you trying to book?

It's definitely a tight connection and you should be prepared to miss it if you do book it. How long would you need to wait for the next flight if you were to miss the connection? And can you afford to wait?

If it is "official" connecting flight (i.e. QR sell it as pair), shouldn't they factor in the tight connecting flight?

They do, but on a 45 minute connection even a relatively small delay on the first leg could cause one to miss the next flight.
