The Qsuite experience

Given the title of “World’s Best Business Class” by 2019 Skytrax World Airline Awards and 2019 TripAdvisor Travellers’ Choice Awards, the Qsuite is Qatar Airways‘ “new standard of Business Class”.

These are the airline’s first-ever Business Class suites with doors which also include ambient mood lighting, fully lie-flat beds, and generous storage space. Here are some photos of this beautiful cabin:

“The quad” is a combination of four Qsuites and is a private space for meetings in the air. This configuration allows family, friends, or business colleagues to work, dine, and socialize via movable panels. When it’s time to sleep, space can be reconfigured to give all passengers privacy.

Qsuite to appear on the Dreamliner

Word on the street is that Qatar is planning to introduce a new generation of Qsuite onboard its Boeing 787-9 Dreamliners. This is according to aviation analyst Alex Macheras. Macheras mentions that the Boeing 787-9 requires the new Qsuite product because of the aircraft’s smaller fuselage, which is narrower than the Boeing 777 and Airbus A350.

Eventually, the Qsuite should be Qatar’s standard business class product as it refreshes its fleet and its cabins.
