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, 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?
As of August 2017 there is one rotation DOH-LHR-DOH per day. As of April 23rd 2018 this is increasing to two. QR7/8 with 359 and QR1/2 with 351.
23rd September there will be a single daily DOH-CDG-DOH rotation
One daily DOH-JFK-DOH rotation is scheduled to start Dec. 15th.

As to other routes NO ONE KNOWS!

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

What aircraft are fitted with Qsuites?
Updated information as to which aircraft are fitted with Qsuites is in the Wiki in the The Complete Guide to the Qatar Airways Fleet thread.

1) October is still far away. Expect 1 (or more) changes to your flight
2) The QSuites on that route may only be temporary

My QR8 on the 2nd March just changed seatmap to a standard 777, extremely disappointed :-(
Any chance it will revert to Qsuites?

Mrs and I flying DOH > ORD on 20May. New seat map for Q-Suites has been posted for flt, but not available to choose any of the quad seats online. Called Rez line, and told "all under airport control" Ughhh. I've heard rumor that you can chose them on line ORD>DOH. No personal experience

Just booked their 10% off fares today from ORD to JNB (Visa card promo) and was happy to see Q-Suites for DOH-ORD for early october...though late september flight from ORD to DOH was 'old' biz. Any idea if/when they might q-suite DOH-JNB?

same thing with my booking....the center seats are all blocked. I suspect they might wait to see if groups of 4 book seats? or corporate travel?

Quads are blocked for parties of 3 or 4.

Smile Why is BLR-DOH-BLR showing Qsuites this week in seatmap

Hi,
My brother is flying BLR - DOH - BLR and i was doing seat selection for him and its showing Qsuite map when I go for seat selection (or so I think).
Flight QR573 from BLR - DOH on Sun, March 4.
Flight QR572 from DOH - BLR on Wed, March 7.
I went to check seatmap in Expertflyer and seeing the same thing. I thought Qsuites is only on DOH - LHR/CDG/JFK/IAD. How did BLR get Qsuites and am I misreading it.
If true, really excited for my brother.

Officially, yes, but they will always end up flying elsewhere between QSuite only routes. It is just impossible to predict so your brother is lucky

There are some exceptions. If all window-side seats are assigned or blocked, QR reservations can unlock quads for single travelers.

Also, some TA's can get them unblocked. My corporate TA has done this for me several times, so I could try to luck into a double bed.
