There’s no other way to describe it…Qatar Airways “QSuites” is a first class luxury experience trapped in a business class body. A huge TV, plush bedding, a privacy door to your suite, you’re given pajamas…what more could you ask for!?
Recently, I had the opportunity to review Qsuites [READ ABOUT IT HERE] and it was the bees knees!!
“Qsuites” have been all the rage since Qatar introduced the seats in the summer of 2017 and the airline has been working diligently on installing this product throughout their fleet.
Currently, Qatar operates with a variety of planes, however, you will only find Qsuites on:
- Select 777-200s
- Select 777-300ERs
- Select A350-900s and on;
- All A350-1000s
However, as of 1 August 2020, all Qatar Airways flights to (and from) North America will feature Qsuites.
CURRENT NORTH AMERICAN QSUITE ROUTES
Generally, when an airline updates their product, it takes a while before all the airplanes possess that product.
Personally, I’ve attempted to review Qsuites since its inception, but unfortunately last minute swaps (to plane without QSuites) and flying on routes that did not feature Qsuites are the reason that it has taken me so long to review it.
Currently, in North America, Qatar Airways flies to Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, Dallas, Houston, Los Angeles, Miami, Montreal, New York, Philadelphia, and Washington D.C. However, the airline does not offer QSuites on the Atlanta or Miami route.
As an Atlanta resident and fan of Qatar Airways, it’s frustrating having to position to another city instead of departing from my home city especially when it seems like EVERYONE else has it.
FUTURE NORTH AMERICAN QSUITE ROUTES
According to the seat maps, it appears Atlanta will receive Qsuites on 1 May 2020, and Miami will receive Qsuites on 1 August 2020.
Given all of this information, the Qsuite routes will look this:
- Atlanta (ATL) – Operated daily w/ 777-200LR
- Boston (BOS) – Operated daily w/ 777-300ER
- Chicago (ORD) – Operated daily w/ 777-300ER
- Dallas (DFW) – Operated daily w/ A350-1000
- Houston (IAH) – Operated daily w/ A350-1000
- Los Angeles (LAX) – Operated daily w/ A350-1000
- Miami (MIA) – Operated daily w/ A350-1000
- Montreal – Operated 4x weekly w/ 777-300ER
- New York (JFK) – Operated twice daily w/ A350-1000
- Philadelphia (PHL) – Operated daily w/ 777-300ER
- Washington (IAD) – Operated daily w/ 777-300ER
Qatar Airways has some of the best service, food, and drinks of all the airlines in the industry. However, Qsuites pushes it far beyond what other airlines offer.
It’s also worth noting that while I’m excited to finally see that Qsuites will be present on all North American and the seat maps reflect the changes, it is always subject to change. As I mentioned above, I’ve booked QSuites previously and been subject to last minute plane swaps.
The silver lining here is the more planes that are equipped with Qsuites, the less likely you are to experience extreme sadness when they have a last minute swap (…ok, maybe extreme sadness only applies to me) but you get what I’m saying. 😉
Have you flown in Qsuites yet? What was your experience? If not, have you put this experience on your bucket list?
