NEW: Qatar Airways Qsuite
« 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.
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

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:








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.

I happen to think that EKs new Bar looks quite nice.

Shall we rename the thread to ITB Berlin revelations? :)

Cool that you can connect (per the video) your laptop to the screen. Do any other IFE's have HDMI or wifi screen connection capabilities?

Haven't seen one that lets you play video from external source though, only picture and audio.

(Unless maybe specifically with an iPhone dock).

Quote from OMAAT:

Quote
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.
