Unrivaled comfort from Paris
As a reminder, Qatar Airways was the first airline in the world to have operated the A350-1000, the largest model in the A350 family, and has placed an order for 37 aircrafts of this type on a total order of 76 Airbus aircraft. The A350-1000 is equipped with 327 seats in 2 cabins: 46 Qsuite Business Class seats and 281 extra wide 18'' Economy class seats. The latest from Airbus is at the forefront of technology. Through the use of composite materials, it reduces the impact on the environment in terms of greenhouse gas emissions. Inside the cabin, LED lighting helps reducing the effects of jet lag by simulating the natural light of sunrise and sunset.
Business travelers can discover or rediscover the Qsuite: the first cabin in the world to be fully transformable and flexible. This unique suite, patented by the company, is equipped with the first seat of the aviation industry that can become a double bed. Thanks to its specificities, the travel experience becomes unique and customized, a tailor-made environment and personalized service designed to meet the highest expectations of travelers. The Qsuite was also awarded in 2018 "Best Business Class in the World" and "Best Business Class Seat" by Skytrax.
