Qatar Airways recently added a new touch of class to its already top-of-the-range business class travel with the unveiling its customisable private suites, named QSuite, at ITB Berlin, the world’s largest travel trade show.
QSuite features the industry’s first-ever double bed available in business class, with privacy panels that stow away, allowing passengers in adjoining seats to create their own private room. Adjustable panels and movable TV monitors on the centre four seats allow colleagues, friends or families travelling together to transform their space into a private suite, allowing them to work, dine and socialise together. These new features provide the ultimate customisable travel experience that enables passengers to create an environment that suits their own unique needs.
“Our patented design is a world first in many ways and challenges industry norms by offering passengers more privacy, more choice and more personalisation. With these innovations, Qatar Airways is revolutionising the way we serve our business class travellers, enabling our passengers to enjoy a first-class experience in business class. This is truly business class as never seen before and is entirely in keeping with our Premium product and service philosophy. On Qatar Airways, you choose when you dine, and the menu options are varied, with something for everyone. You choose when you rest, and when you want entertainment. We offer more choices than any other airline. It only makes sense to give you the choice to make your own cabin-within-a-cabin, creating double QSuites or quadrants,” says the airline’s chief executive Akbar Al Baker.
Each seat is crafted with thoughtful and luxurious details such as hand-stitched Italian leather and satin rose-gold finishing, bringing an unprecedented level of luxury, privacy and style. To further complement the customisable on-board seating experience that passengers will now enjoy, the airline is also launching a new food and beverage concept, introducing a menu that offers a host of new dining choices.
In addition to the existing “dine on demand” service, the new business class menu will now offer a selection of snack “sharing dishes” available throughout the flight, allowing travellers to turn dining at 35,000 feet into a social experience. A wake-up express breakfast will also be available for those who choose to sleep a little longer by making the most of the “Do Not Disturb” option available on the door of their private QSuite.
