Qatar have confirmed the presence of a policy whereby if a customer booked a QSuites flight and subsequently gets an aircraft type swap can you request travel on an alternative flight, subject to availability, see post #2709 Previously this included change of routing, now it only includes changing the date on the same routing. QR issued tickets only!
Qatar Airways confirms new business class seat

A video of the new Q Suite can be seen here - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_yhZDsctiZg

Photos of the new Q Suite can be seen here - http://www.flyertalk.com/forum/28007634-post109.html

From TGFlyerGirl:
there are some quite complex rules entries around seat selection - but in essence, solo travellers as a guideline won't be assigned QUADS (they are blocked off), and it's generally for 3/4 pax families. Once a QUAD has been broken up (out of necessity - for example with a couple in the E/F seats), then the rest of the quad is unlocked and can be filled with individual travellers.

They've also made 1A/2B last offered to allow airport flexibility to handle last minute requests. The other 18 windows and aisles are free for reservation as per the normal process.

The bassinet position is 11B/J (77W) and 8B/J (A359), reduced mobility seats are 2/4/6/9 B and J.

All A/E/F/K's are backward facing, all B,D,G,J's are forward facing. Total 20 Forward/22 Backward.

Capacity:
77W: J42/Y312
High density 77W: J24/Y388
77L: J42/Y230
35K: J46/Y281
359: J36/Y247

Which routes have Qsuites?
Details and changes can be found in the various recent threads.

As to other routes NO ONE KNOWS!

I repeat NO ONE KNOWS!! so do not ask!

Reference post #109, last photo - no privacy for some in-flight rumpy pumpy then.

Im not impressed as Akbar Al Baker drummed up the hype that it would be revolutionary seats, blah blah blah and yet they come up with smaller width seats with some backward facing seats which just looks like an enhanced BA Club World concept with sliding doors.

This is a big let down. Im not impressed with the seats and the hype is over the top.

Regarding the seats, I only have to comments: The "family rooms" may get a little annoying if people start something similar to "kids table" in restaurants. I somewhat dislike the many violet tones. Other than that it looks rather promising.
Just my 2, I don't think it was filmed on an A359 or A350-1000, it looks like CGI to me, the passengers may be green screened/composited over the top. Watch the promo video from 2 minutes and see how the lady's pillow moves unnaturally against the background as the camera pans -

Is it just me or do the window seats on the new Delta One all-suite business class look a little wider?

The Etihad/ANA J style seats were already a little narrow for me. Adding a door might feel a little claustrophobic.

Not exactly, but they are looking to make the F seats more private.

As has already been answered above, there will be no reduction in seat numbers in J on the 777s.

It is likely the same will apply to the A350.

I hope there are two armrests rather than just on one side. The EY A380 aisle/fwd facing J seats had a tiny armrest and on one side with the divider and you can barely sit comfortably with that. Heres hoping that smaller cushioned part comes up like on the B787. Also, from one of the above photos it seems that the lifejacket maybe under that part as there is a "pull" tab on it.

Further, has anyone noticed how on the window, and middle love seats in the photo, the protrusion from the side table from the seat "facing you" is there under the screen. But on the aisle-window seats and couple seats sharing the large centre table have no ledge/protrusion under the screen.

They probably have to update it at some point, when they introduce a new A380 bizz.

Not to mention that there's more privacy for passengers compared to what customers currently get on the 777 or on other airlines.

Club world is much more awkward than that. Even if the divider has to be down for departure and arrival, you won't automatically stare at each other.

I can guarantee this is CGI. Pretty nicely done though.

I kinda agree. They've hyped this for - three years? They really shouldn't have.

And by the time they're done it's really kinda meh since Delta stole their thunder with the 'revolutionary' walls before Q Suite was out.
