Cattle class travellers look away now: Qatar Airways has launched the first ever business class double bed and it looks amazing.
Passengers need only recline two middle seats to create a flat bed, complete with partition panels giving the feel of a private bedroom – albeit one that anyone walking by can peer over the top of.
The room – known as a Q-Suite – offers up a full boudoir experience complete with proper quilts and smart sleep suits from The White Company.
Moveable TV monitors, seats finished with hand-stitched Italian leather and satin rose gold and new china and cutlery are also on the business class menu.
Such treats are far from cheap, of course – a return trip from London to Doha would set you back around £3,800
The seats can also be reconfigured into a quad arrangement, allowing a group of four to sit opposite each other in a private pod.
The luxurious new design was unveiled earlier this week at ITB Berlin, the world’s largest travel trade show.
The new look took two years to create and has been described by the airline as a “first class experience in business class”.
Qatar Airways chief executive Akbar Al Baker said: “Our unique and patented design is a world first in many ways and challenges industry norms by offering passengers more privacy, more choice and more personalisation.”
