Qatar Airways has made this
Qatar Airways has announced that it will introduce its “revolutionary” Business Class seat, Qsuite, on flights from Chicago starting on April 1.
This will allow “even more travellers to experience the new standard of luxury, comfort and customisation in international travel set by the airline, and strengthening its commitment to its gateway markets in the US,” the Doha-based carrier has said in a statement.
The introduction of the globally-acclaimed Business Class seat on Qatar Airways flights from Chicago extends Qsuite’s existing US presence at both New York City’s John F Kennedy International Airport and Washington, DC’s Dulles International Airport.
Qatar Airways Group chief executive Akbar al-Baker said, “Qsuite has already established itself as an unrivalled product, setting a new standard in Business Class travel in the aviation industry, and receiving global acclaim from industry leaders, international media and — most importantly — our valued Business Class travellers. By building on the successful launch of Qsuite in both New York and Washington, DC, we are now tremendously excited to bring this luxurious, one-of-a-kind product to the Windy City, enabling travellers departing from Chicago to experience this revolutionary product for themselves.”
Qsuite features the industry’s first-ever double bed available in Business Class and customisable private cabins for up to four people, perfect for friends, families and business colleagues travelling together. With adjustable panels and movable TV monitors on the centre four seats, Qsuite provides the “ultimate personalised travel experience that enables passengers to create an environment that suits their own unique needs”, the statement notes.
The expansion of Qsuite to Chicago is part of Qatar Airways’ commitment to “continuously revolutionise the passenger experience, enabling travellers to enjoy First Class amenities within the airline’s Business Class cabin”, the airline has stressed. Qsuite will be fitted on the Qatar Airways Boeing 777-300 ER out of Chicago O’Hare International Airport, and will later be introduced on the airline’s Airbus A350-900 aircraft on flights from New York City – the first US destination to feature Qsuite on this ultra-modern, fuel-efficient aircraft.
