Qatar rolls out Qsuite business class to its Boeing 777-200LR jets

By David Flynn, May 23 2018

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.

Hope this will be much better than the ones on the 350's The current seats are too narrow and the angle to find the right spot to sleep hardly exist,even the Emirates seats which are not fully flat are more comfortable

Just travelled on new Qatar 350-900 in business class.

Would be best I’ve ever been in. Fully enclosed, blocking noise and light.

Flown the Q suites for the first time in January - by far the best business class seat there is - It's like first class with business class prices. Fully enclosed which at the time I thought whats the big deal but when that door slides shut its on another level. The food, the services, the seat, the whole experience was beyond beyond. Couldn't possibly fly any other airline now

Wonder what’s happened to the promise of bringing Qsuites to the SYD/CBR flight from June? Appears to have been an empty promise

Sooooo looking forward to this - fly Perth to Houston a couple of times a year and the seats in the 777, while great lie-flats, were still a pain without direct access and were the only real downside to the Qatar service. Changing to Q suites will make it impossible to select any other service (especially as EK doesn't give me SC on my QFF profile, and QR do....)
