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!

FWIW -
The vast majority of my QR flights, they talk to QR Elites, then OWE first on meal orders. Then typically go front to back.

Seems like the front to back after the elites is done in 2 categories though. I got asked for my order dead last & served also dead last sitting in Row 6 as I recall.

Way home I took Row 7, which was better for a window view as well but I was first to order and get food. I feel like they do 1-6 then 7-mini cabin w/ diff cabin crew working those rows.

Recently flew Qsuite for the first time with my wife in the middle seats on both the 777 and 350. Seats 3E&F

777 is more comfortable because of the air vents. Didn't realise how warm it gets on the 350, made sleeping a bit difficult. I am 6'3" so had to bend the legs a bit but was fine enough especially with the double bed setup.

However the IFE on the 350 has so much more content. Not sure why but the 777 was bare bones stuff. Bizarre.

Crew on both were fantastic and all catering options were available.

Hi all,

Soon to have our first flight in Q-Suites, traveling as a couple from DOH to LHR on an afternoon/evening flight. I can choose seats as a BA Gold, so just wondering what the advice is for a couple, who both usually like the windows. I've got 3k and 4J on the A350-900 currently, and the two questions I have are as follows: 1. Can you slide part of the screen between these two seats open, so you can see each other/have a chat? 2. Is the stool to the side of the seat big enough to sit on on for a drink/chat or not really practical?

Alternatively, all of the E/F honeymoon suites are available to choose, so should I just do that for the experience, especially bearing in mind it will be dark for a lot of the flight? (and I will have had my geeky window seat fix on the prior day flight from COK). If so, is row 1 the place to be? Or I'm tempted by the smaller cabin?

Thanks

There is nothing to slide on the window seats. The Q-Suite windows/isles are very private.
No chance to sit/visit with someone with Q-Suites.

If you want to talk at all, choose the honeymoon seats.

Like you said, if it will be dark, the window is less important.

Enjoy!

I think I've seen the screen moved aside at window seats so the front and back facing seats can see and talk to each other (imagine it's like forming a quad configuration but without the other half of the quad of course).

Not with QSuites. Doesn't exist on the sides.

JAL has it. But not Qsuites on the side.

This hasn't been the case on any of my flights. As OWEs, we always get a brief welcome chat from the cabin services director, but meal orders have always been strictly by row order, at least in the forward J cabin.

I sure hope it's very close to Qsuite and not the dreadful Business Suite.

My experience has been similar to BA and JL, OWE receive a welcome and then meals order are taken and delivered. Any accounting is conducted in the galley when OWEs and descending by status are prioritised. Food is then delivered by rows. Different systems, but I do prefer this to say AA where it is very obvious that this is being done by status.

On my last few flights as a OWE on QR, there has been no obvious effort to prioritise orders by status. In fact there have been a few occasions when sat at in the last rows where I've had to take plan B or C options due to prior passenger selection.

I have flown a dozen plus QR flights this year. Always got my first choice. Most always, order taken ahead of others around me. OWE

I am sure there is some variation by crew and maybe I have had good luck, but in all years flying QR, never not had my first choice.

77L 1EF vs 7EF vs 9EF vs 11EF

3EF are my go-to Qsuite seats flying with someone, with 5EF as backup. I've got a 772 Qsuite flight (one of the DFW-DOH flights) booked and currently 3EF and 5EF are both occupied. 7EF are right by the rear lavs. I'm considering 1EF. I know on a 77W the flight crew rest takes up the space where the row 1 overhead bins would be, so I avoid it on that plane. Does 1EF on the 772 have overhead bins? Any other reasons for or against 1EF? (I saw some other posts with someone being bothered by lavatory traffic and other post with someone saying they didn't experience any problems with it.)

Like you, 3eef is best then 5EF. But we have flown (EF and were perfectly happy with it.
7EF is a no-no. We have not flown 1EF as we always avoided it because of galley noise and foot traffic. But no personal experience.

I am sure that you are aware that the config might change a few times if your flight is in several months.

I’d say for me it’s less than 50% as a QR Plat. Luckily haven’t been denied my first choice ever, but there have been a handful of segments where they made me choose between soup or a starter.
