Changing into pyjamas in Qsuites - etiquette?

So, first flight in Qsuites coming up. Normally change in the bathroom. Is it okay to change in your Qsuites??

Iíd say Qsuites arenít going to be as private (or capacious!) as you think they will be. You could probably just about change in the seat but would require a bit of an act of contortion to do it and youíd be far more comfortable going to the bathroom.

The only cabin where Iíve changed outside of that bathroom is EK new F.

Bathroom for me, although I saw someone yesterday strip
off in the middle of a non-Qsuite 777 cabin. Thankfully he didnít appear to be going commando.

Right - bathroom it is then!

Also - trying to do an online checkin which should now be open. I'm in the UK and the flight is leaving from ARN-BNE. Any ideas why it isn't letting me do an online checkin?

Def. change in the bathroom. Easier for everyone.

As for why you canít check-in, do you have a non-Qatar flight before your Q-Suite leg? I had that issue (I flew AS to LAX for my flight to BOM), and as a result, wasnít able to check-in until I was at the airport. There wasnít anyone at the gate yet, so they checked me in at the lounge.

On the return (which was Qatar from BOM to DOH and DOH to LAX), I think I was able to check-in online, but I may still have been forced to do it at the airport, I canít remember. May was a long time ago. Lol.

It's now letting me do it. Weird.

Thanks all!

Keep in mind that it’s easy enough to change back into your normal clothes while in Qsuites before landing because your door is still closed.

You can change in your QSuite, but surely anyone walking past will see everything! The door isn't that high!

Usually OLCI doesn't open on the dot 48 hours before departure, usually 10-15 minutes later.

I have to join withall the previous etiquette experts. The etiquette is pyjamas in Bathroom - for the cabin crew's sake if not fellow pax.
Q suites and similar are simply not enough to keep you sufficiently private.
Depending on the airline and the timing of pyjama distribution - there are variations....
I'm very much the change before takeoff type - if not yet distributed I'll ask

Yes. I tend to do just that too. And have the seat made up before takeoff if possible so I can sleep when I want.

Thankfully all checked in. My BA connection to ARN is about to leave on time-ish. Looking like everything is going to be stress free.
