Airlines have been competing to outshine each other since the beginning of commercial air travel. When Qatar unveiled its revolutionary Qsuite in March 2017, however, it sparked a global arm (rest) race which has seen international business class travellers enjoy ever-increasing levels of privacy.
How so? Well the Qsuite was the first-ever Business Class suite with sliding doors and dine-on-demand, and since its inception, we have seen numerous airlines introduce their own versions (see: British Airways Has Finally Found A Way To Give Its Pointy End Passengers Greater Levels Of Privacy).
But back to Qatar Airways – the problem is, when an airline unveils a new product, it’s not exactly viable to throw out the old (and retro-fit the new) all at once. It can take years for this to happen – as is the case here, with Qatar Airlines only assigning Qsuite carrying jets to the Doha- Philadelphia route in June this year.
Even if you are not a regular flyer of this route, the video they released yesterday of the game-changing suits on the Doha-Philly corridor is certainly worth a squiz, if only to whet your appetite for your next business class journey, on whatever route that may be, on one of Qatar’s A350-1000 (all of which have Qsuites) or a Qsuite carrying Boeing 777-200, Boeing 777-300 or an A350-900.
