Should you’re an aviation junkie like us, chances are high you’ve heard about Qatar Airways new QSuite. It’s revolutionized and challenged conventional enterprise-class seats and has been named World’s Finest Enterprise-Class by Skytrax. Properly, of us, Qatar Airways has simply introduced the QSuite to LAX – and we had the glory of happening their inaugural flight from Los Angeles to Doha! That’s proper – little ol’ US! We’re nonetheless unsure how we even certified for such an unimaginable and momentous event, however, that’s irrelevant. Our journey was wonderful. QSuite is wonderful.
It’s uncommon that we discover airplane meals price writing about, however, the meals we ate whereas flying within the QSuite had been constantly wonderful. (And contemplating we had been in flight for 16 hours every method, we tried nearly everything on the menu!) Qatar Airways has an on-demand a la carte menu, the place you’ll be able to order what you need once you need it. You say the phrase and so they’ll “set the desk” with white linens, fancy plates and flatware, and even a glowing candle! Certain, the desk setting is spectacular, however, the actual winner is the delicacies. Among the highlights had been:
Metal–Minimize Oats Served With Berries And Cream
Who knew oatmeal could possibly be this scrumptious? We prefer to joke that you may decide a spot based mostly on the standard of their oatmeal, and if that’s the case, Qatar Airways will get 5 stars. It’s hearty and scrumptious and has the right quantity of “candy”.
The primary programs that we had been served within the QSuite would simply rival a preferred restaurant in LA, each in presentation and style! The Seared Halibut was one of all our favorites, served with steamed pumpkins, saffron veloute, and roasted kipflers. The fish was cooked completely (how do they even DO that on an aircraft?!), and the flavors all paired splendidly collectively.
A fast flip by the intensive wine and beverage menu and we shortly realized we had been in for a deal. From the welcome glass of glowing “Atair” Brut Rose, to “Spier” an oaky and zesty South African Chardonnay, to Bobby’s favorite, the Previous Long-established (with Woodford Whiskey and Angostura bitters), every thing Qatar Airways serves is premium.
SEATS (OR SHOULD WE SAY… DOUBLE BED?)
To most individuals, a 16-hour flight sounds so much like hell. And we’ve been there. There’s nothing worse than being caught in a cramped house for a big period of time. All you wish to do is lay down, stretch out, snuggle up with a comfortable pillow, and SLEEP. On the QSuite you are able to do simply that, and it makes all of the distinction on the earth.
Not solely do the seats lay fully flat, however when you’re touring along with your vital different, they flip right into a double mattress. We’re critical. It’s wonderful. Not solely that, you’ll be able to shut the doorways on both sides of your seat for complete privateness. Activate the “DND” (Do Not Disturb) button, seize your eye masks and earplugs, and also you’ve obtained the dream airplane scenario – actually!
Cozy pajamas from The White Firm, 21.5-inch leisure displays (with nearly limitless leisure choices), and BRIC amenity kits stocked with Castello Monte Vibiano skincare merchandise… the facilities within the QSuite are top-notch. Even the restrooms are glitzy and clear – and surprisingly spacious!
We will say sufficient concerning the Qatar Airways workers. From the nice and cozy greeting, after we checked in, to call us by identifying in-flight (and even giving us suggestions and recommendations on our keep in Qatar), they really went above and past in each method. We felt particular. We felt valued. We felt like a household. It’s not usually you’ll be able to say that about an airline.
There’s a purpose why Qatar Airways continues to clear the path as among the best airways within the enterprise, and we get it now. They perceive their prospects, and so they goal to please. We noticed this firsthand within the QSuite, and we are able to wait to see how they proceed to innovate and excellent their in-flight experiences. They’re killing it already!
