The Middle Eastern airlines are currently the best in the world and I recently compared Emirates Vs Etihad Vs Qatar. Qatar has just launched a new Business Class Suite at ITB Berlin and it is a game changer offering First Class style seating in their new Business Class Suite named the QSuite.

“First (Class) in Business” – The Incredible New Qatar Airways QSuite

The QSuite is much like the First suite offered by other airlines and Qatar is the only airline to offer this kind of suite in Business Class, which put simply means, when you have a choice of airlines to travel in Business Class, from now on, if there is a chance you might experience this new suite, you should pick Qatar Airways.

Review Of The QSuite

The QSuite is a suite with a door. It is perfect for families, couples as well as lone travellers giving as much or as little privacy as you want, as the wall between the seats can be opened and, if you are travelling as a four, the tables will create one big dining table which is unique to Qatar Airways. Equally, for a couple, the 2 beds are next to each other so by lowering the wall between the seats you will have a full double bed.

The food that you will get with the QSuite will also be of excellent First Class quality when compared to other airlines. In addition, pyjamas will be supplied from the White Company (one of my favourite suppliers of airline PJs)

If you are travelling by yourself, the window seats are excellent as you can close yourself into your window suite and you will experience complete privacy.

When Can I Experience The New QSuite On Qatar?

The QSuite will be fitted to the new A350-1000 and Boeing 777-300ER aircraft. It will also be retrofitted to Qatar’s existing Boeing 777 fleet. These are currently the worst seats offered by this carrier (see my review of Qatar on Boeing 777) and these will be replaced by the best seats offered by Qatar the best.

Seats will also be retrofitted on the Qatar 787 Dreamliner and A380 (although time lines have not been released) but the Airbus A330 and A340 aircraft will not be refitted with the QSuite so, in future, these will be the planes to avoid.

The first flight sporting the new QSuite will be on the Boeing 777, flying between Heathrow and Doha and this should launch around June time. Paris and New York routes will follow.

The introduction of the QSuite makes Qatar Airways the outright winner when choosing an airline to fly to the Middle East in Business Class. By the end of 2018, when this seat has been rolled out across most or all A350’s and Boeing 777’s, there simply will be no comparison between this Business Class product and the Business Class Suites offered by other airlines. Even the new suites offered by American Airlines, United and Delta will not compare, and with the rapid roll out, Qatar should be your first choice for Business Class on routes flying these two planes.
