Flying business class is a treat, especially when you least expect it. Maybe you got lucky with an upgrade, or you saved enough frequent flyer points to treat yourself. Recently, we’re so lucky and got to experience the best business class seats in the world.
Not so long ago, Wander-Lust was invited by Qatar Airways to visit and explore Doha and the rest of Qatar. Despite my fear of flying, I was looking forward to this one. I knew QR had won the best airline in the world award for 2019 and also the world’s best business class. That being said, it was not until we checked in, that we actually got upgraded to their prestigious Qsuites.
Upon arrival you are welcomed with a glass of bubbles
As soon as you enter the plane and see the business class seats of Qatar Airways you know it’s going to be a flight worth your while. Each seat has its own compartment with the option for complete privacy and a chair that can extent to a full horizontal position. You can choose several options such as the quad seats, perfect for families or business partners as you are facing each other. Upon arrival you are welcomed with a glass of bubbles or fresh juice and you almost feel a little bit ashamed as other passengers walk past you to find their economy seats.
In flight Entertainment
Once seated, you’ll notice the big screen in front of you. Qatar Airways offers a range of new Hollywood films, as well as world cinema, series and documentaries. All Qsuite passengers are welcomed with an amenity kit filled that included Italian luxury skin care products (which I obviously took home with me). By this time, you haven’t even realised that the plane has taken off! Funny enough, I only watched one movie because I was so occupied with the food & snack menu.
Food & Drinks
Equally important is the food they serve. Usually, I bring my own salad or sandwich on board because most airlines don’t have the best reputation when it comes to food. Well let me tell you, this is a whole different ball game! If you order food in business class, they even set your table with a table cloth and a mood light, which makes you feel like you are in a luxury restaurant. The menu is ever changing but on my flight I enjoyed falafel and pumpkin with dips, Italian pasta with mushrooms and a very, very decent cappuccino. For breakfast they also served fresh fruit, warm oats or continental breakfast.
Good to know:
- The Qsuite is not (yet) available on all flights, but on the Amsterdam to Doha route they always fly with the Qsuite.
- Business Class (Qsuite) prices vary and always keep an eye on special deals they have! Prices always include 30KG luggage and extra hand-luggage.
- They offer flights to 160 destinations worldwide
Basically, it comes down to this; I’m totally ruined for life when it comes to flying! For me it was the first time (ever) that I was not looking forward to getting off the plane. The 6 hour flight to Doha was too short in my opinion because I could have enjoyed several more hours in the world’s best business class seat.
Fingers crossed it will happen once again! Find out more about Qatar Airways Qsuite here.
