Qatar Airways is now adding its superb Qsuite business class suites to the airline's long-range Boeing 777-200LR jets, which will bring the best-in-class seats closer to the 17+ hour Auckland-Doha route.
The first of Qatar's nine Boeing 777-200LRs to be fitted with the Qsuites will make its debut on flights to Houston on June 2, 2018.
This will see 42 of the cosy cribs replace the current (also 42 in number) 2-2-2 sleepers shown below.
Qatar's Boeing 777-200LR fleet is also tasked with ultra-long flights to Auckland, Los Angeles, Buenos Aires and Sao Paulo.
Qatar is slated to bring the Qsuites onto its Doha-Sydney-Canberra service around the middle of this year, which will make the route and the airline especially tempting to travellers who usually fly with Gulf competitors Emirates and Etihad as well as with fellow Oneworld partner Qantas.
The Qsuites are also flying on some Boeing 777-300ERs and Airbus A350-900s, and all Airbus A350-1000 jets, from Doha to the likes of London, Paris, Frankfurt, New York and Chicago.
