Qatar Airways will launch their new business class seat in March at ITB Berlin. It will rolled out be across the fleet in B777s and A350s, and a new seat will be created for the Qatar B787s as this new seat can’t fit on these planes.
The airline will receive 23 planes this year, all wide bodies, and its eighth of 10 A380s is due to be delivered in the next few weeks.
Hamad International Airport is also going to press ahead with an expansion plan which will see a new Concourse F added to the existing terminal. In 2016 the airport handled 30 million passengers in 2015, around 48 million less than Dubai, which is the world’s largest airport for international passenger traffic.
I have reviewed the Qatar Airways’ Al Safwa First Class in Doha’s Hamad Airport which I consider to be the best airline lounge in the world and the Al Mourjan Business Class lounge.
