Qatar Airways confirms new business class seat

It will (eventually) be across the fleet in B777s and A350s. There will be a new seat development for the B787s as this new seat canít fit in the 787.

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 (probably going 3-4-3 in Y, from 217)
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!

interestingly the inaugural flight to/from DUB on 12 Jun is rostered to be a 359 despite the regular service being operated by a Dreamliner. I presumed the idea being to show off the very latest aircraft,

I wonder would they put the new Q-Suite bird on that flight instead or would it be massively too large? I am presuming 'his excellency' will be aboard.

What Q-Suite bird? Currently there's no Q-Suite bird and the first one will apparently be A7-BED, i.e. a 777-300ER.

I would all most bet that HE would be on-board.
EY have carved a market share and good returns thru DUB and QR want a slice...

The first factory fresh 77W with the Qsuites is undergoing final assembly. Should be delivered in August or late July assuming no seat issues.

@N1Rotate sorry if the question is dull, but I am confused because of the first flight being rumoured to fly to LHR.

Are these new deliveries going feature first class?

I doubt that. AFAIK no QR 777 has a first class cabin. QR only rebrands it as first on s/h.

Unfortunately, it seems that the QR 777 under assembly is a cargo jet according to publicly available online unofficial production lists.

BKKA380 It is possible that the start of the first regular scheduled flight is 17 June but perhaps there is a 'shakedown' flight before that with all the QR bigwigs.

As with everything QR there is no really reliable information available.

They are supposed to start this on my birthday and have not invited me?

Am I right in thinking that rows 3 and 5 E and F would be the seats that they advertise that can open up into 4 for a family? And is it both that have the potential for a double bed?
