Qatar Airways Unveils New Business Class Product

Qatar Airways has unveiled its new business class seats at the ITB Berlin travel trade fair. The Qsuite is the result of 3 years of development by the airline and is intended to bring a new level of luxury to business class flying, incorporating features previously seen only in first class cabins.


Finished in high-quality materials and sporting the airline’s grey, burgundy and white colour scheme, the suites are configured in an alternating staggered 1-2-1 layout and convert into a full-flatbed. A sliding door promises improved privacy, enhanced by a Do-Not-Disturb functionality. At the same time, the new seats are intended to offer a more social flying experience through the use of adjustable panels and monitors allowing the forward- and backward-facing seats to be configured to a mini-cabin for 2 or 4 (center seats only) passengers.


Owing to the layout, passengers enjoy more shoulder-room and a small “alcove” seat at the side, with the console shelf now positioned diagonally forward. Here, the seat controls, storage space, IFE controller and connectivity ports can be found together with a contactless reader, which passengers can use to sync entertainment choices made before the flight on the Qatar Airways mobile app to the Qsuite.


As part of the new business class offering, Qatar Airways will introduce snack sharing plates into its on-demand dining concept. Bespoke pillows and quilted blankets further enhance the comfort-factor of the new seat, with selected center seats converting into a double-bed in a first for business class travel.


The Qsuite debuts in June 2017 on the Doha – London (Heathrow) route onboard a new Boeing 777-300ER, followed closely by Qatar Airways’ new fleet of Airbus A350-1000s. The airline will also refit existing A350 and B777 aircraft at the rate of 1 per month, after which the A380s and B787s will receive a modified version of the seat.
