Come join us on our flight from Doha to Los Angeles aboard Qatar Airways QSuite on the Airbus A350-1000XWB
Qatar Airways offers the spectacular QSuite business class product on their Airbus A350-1000 aircrafts. The seat itself is very comfortable and private. Some of the center seats can even be converted into a quad, where a party of 4 people can sit together. Top that with luxurious amenities, excellent onboard service and delicious, artfully presented meals and you have a winning first-class flight –in business!
What I liked:
The onboard service – The onboard service was excellent! The Maria and the flight attendants working our aisle were friendly, efficient, and proactive in delivering the in-flight service. The crew anticipated all our needs during the flight, and even offered turndown service.
The food – The onboard catering was excellent as always. Despite the changes in service, the onboard catering was still beautifully presented and delicious! Qatar offers a dine-on-demand service, and I was able to order what I wanted from the menu at any time during the flight. There were plenty of food and beverage selections, and an extensive wine list.
The IFE – This plane uses the Oryx One Entertainment system and it offers a plethora of new and classic movies, TV programs, music, and games selections. The system interface is responsive and it was easy to navigate through the media content. The Airbus A350 also has an impressive outside camera.
The amenities – Qatar offers excellent business class amenities. All passengers are offered a Bric’s amenity kit with Castello Monte Vibiano Vecchio toiletries, and pajamas by The White Company London. A bottled water, and noise canceling headphones are available at each seat. A full-size pillow, a thick and comfortable duvet, and mattress pad are fitted on the seat during turndown service. The lavatories are also very clean and furnished with Rituals toiletries.
The Lounge – The Al Mourjan lounge in Doha is considered by many as one of the best business class lounges in the industry, and for a good reason. This lounge is massive and airy with high ceilings. The lounge is tastefully designed with minimalist décor and offers plenty of comfortable seating while waiting for your next flight. There are 2 restaurants in the lounge. On the main level is the “deli-style” restaurant serving light fare. The main restaurant upstairs features both an assisted buffet and a la carte table service. The showers rooms in the lounge are spacious, clean, and offer Rituals toiletries.
What I didn’t like:
NONE! — This really was a near flawless flight!
It was OK…I guess:
The seats – Just like my last review, I really like Qatar’s QSuite product and I think it’s the best business class product available to date. The seat is private, yet spacious and well laid out. The seat controls, IFE, storage, and power outlets are all within an easy reach. The QSuite also features a door that you can close in-flight for extra privacy. Did I mention Qatar offers personal air nozzles on the Airbus A350? 😊 The only negative thing I noticed is that when lying down, my knees would constantly hit the tray table when turning to my side or back.
