Title: NEW: Qatar Airways Qsuite
Post by: AJK on March 08, 2017, 10:33:48 AM
I must say, even though DL beat them to the punch with doors, the product is unique even still, and gorgeous.  And, for once, Al Baker wasn't lying when he said a double bed in J.

IMO, QR has set a new bar, a bar which is leaps and bounds above competitors.

The quad suite seems particularly fantastic for families of four.

Pretty amazing.
Hope to see other airlines copy it :)

It will be the death of F class though. I wonder what that will mean for pricing of the product.

Wow! I can't believe this is going to be their biz product. Hope there won't be any restrictions booking this with AA airlines.

In other news I guess this means more young children in J.  :-\

I cannot imagine what EK and EY are thinking now...

For EK, this is their "new" 777 J seat, a 2-3-2 config  :o:



(https://thedesignair.files.wordpress.com/2016/03/img_0012.jpg)




For EY, even if their product is not as bad as EK, they just came out with is, and while pretty, it can't really compare with QR.  Al-Baker finally has reason to talk.

Perhaps, but not for at least a decade...  EK and SQ are announcing even grander F products in the coming weeks/months.

For as long as their is oil in the ME, and for as long as companies will send their c-levels in paid F, it's not going anywhere, though it may shrink.

(Unless maybe specifically with an iPhone dock).

Quote from OMAAT:

Qatar Airways apparently won’t be reducing seat count to accommodate these new seats. The 777-300ERs feature 42 business class seats, and the new product will also feature 42 seats, without eliminating economy seats.

I have found more options that way as sometimes you can bee off by one day or a few hours and it will show as no availability.

Etihad and Qatar often have trouble stringing availability together. Cathay and Singapore in specific often use married segment inventory on awards so you sometimes only find availability for the combined trip.

Thanks. I found that out with Etihad but so far not the case on BA for Qatar. Probably didn't search enough to find a problem.

Also QR  is known for last minute aircraft swaps especially cities such as YUL so even if EF   has Qsuites one will not know %100, one can view Flightradar24 for the incoming aircraft DOH YUL then you'll know %100 if it is QSuites or not.

 There is a list of the Qsuites Aircraft tail numbers on flyertalk.

Here is an interesting comment that was posted on FT regarding Qsuites:

 "Just got last-minute aircraft change for tomorrow's (22MAR) QR274 AMS-DOH.
I created a system (spending multiple days on it) in which I analyzed all factual cabins on this flight since the beginning on Q Suite operation in October, found out that was almost never the old cabin on Fridays, booked it for Friday, then checked my flight and all other dates every single day since the booking in January, noting the patterns of them changing the aircrafts (normally they did it one week in advance and only once they changed it on the same day), checked in online yesterday (while it was still Q Suite) only to completely get my dreams crushed today finding out it was replaced with the old cabin version. We also spent all our miles to get there in Q Suite which ended up just for nothing. Sad."

You're on the wrong forum for that.
