Qatar Airways unveils world’s first double beds on flights

Qatar Airways has unveiled the world’s first double beds on its flights from London to Doha in business class. 

Passengers flying from London Heathrow on the airline's daily Boeing 777 service will be able to create double beds by removing a privacy screen between seats .

The carrier’s senior vice president for Europe Jonathan Harding called the Qsuite cabins a “first class product in business class”.

He spoke to the Press Association: “It’s a revolutionary, brand new, game-changing product which we are going to roll out across our business class fleet, raising the business class experience to a new level.

“We have the first double bed in the sky so people travelling together are able to avail themselves of that.

“If you’re travelling by yourself you get privacy, particularly in one of our window seats, but our quads can be configured in a way that is very flexible and comfortable.”

If a group of four passengers is travelling together, they can also move the Qsuite cabins to create a private area. This allows a space that can be used by families, as well as for business meetings, and as an area to socialise.

 

The only catch is that one business class seat costs £1,600, and £3,200 for a double.

According to aviation analyst Alex Macheras, the seats are “the best business class in the skies today”. He also praised the “very comfortable bed, beautiful on-board decor and furnishings”.

“I’d fly Qsuite over heaps of other first class products in the industry,” he said.

Qsuite will be available next to New York and Paris.

Qatar Airways has been named the world's best airline for 2017, after stealing back the title from UAE carrier Emirates, which dropped from first to fourth place in this year's World Airline Awards.
