Economy Class Cabin
Qatar offers one of the best economy-class seat experiences in the industry, including a generous amount of legroom, wider seats, an amenity kit, in-flight entertainment, USB ports, power outlets, and even a personal telephone.
Business Class Cabin
Qatar Airways Business Class was ranked The World’s Best Business Class in both 2016 and 2017 by the Skytrax World Airline Awards. Their Business Class Offering currently comes in two flavors – Traditional Business Class and the new QSuite Business Class.
Qatar’s new business class offering is called the “QSuite” and is a revolutionary design in that it can be configured differently for a variety of different scenarios.
The QSuite can offer the privacy of an individual business class setting with a raised partition or can be configured in a double suite / double bed configuration for couples. For those traveling in groups, the QSuite can even be arranged into a four-person configuration for those traveling on business or a family of four (although there aren’t too many families of four that can travel like this!)
First Class Cabin
Qatar offers a first-class product but is really focused on its business class, specifically the new Q Suite configuration, as demand for the “ultra-luxury” market segment declines. That said, the Qatar first class product definitely provides some additional privacy with its 8-seat location in the front of the A380 upper deck (The A380 is the only plane with first class in the Qatar Airways fleet).
The ORYX ONE in-flight entertainment system offers a choice of up to 3,000 inflight entertainment options, providing its passengers with one of the world’s largest and best inflight entertainment libraries.
