Qatar Plans Double Beds in Business Class to “Best First on Rival Carriers”

by Adam

Qatar Airways CEO Al Baker said the airline will roll out a new business class cabin next year which will “best the first class offerings of other Gulf carriers”. He noted that the seat (over which Qatar Air will have proprietary rights), will allow Qatar to offer the most luxurious business class in the sky.

“We always raise the bar for our dear friends around the area to try to copy us,” Al Baker said in Doha. “We will have a double bed with only a business-class fare.” “This will be a product that will be unrivaled in our industry,” Al Baker said of the seat, which replaces so-called super-business-class berths. “When you introduce that into the aeroplane, I really don’t think you need a first class.”

Unfortunately, no concept drawings of the cabin have been released yet. Qatar of course is a oneworld partner and redemption opportunities have been relatively good since they joined the alliance.
