Ultimate Guide for Qatar Airways Qsuite, all routes with the corresponding flight numbers, registration numbers, when airplanes will be retrofitted and more.
Qatar Airways Qsuite introduction
Qatar’s Qsuite was the winner of the 2018 TPG Awards Best International Business Class of the Year, and for most people Qatar Airways and their Qsuites offer the best business class product on the market as well.
In our list below you will be able to see how often a route is operated by an aircraft that is equipped with a Qsuite cabin.
We try to update the list as fast as possible when changes occur.
Warning, the following information is not binding in any way. Qatar Airways can change flight equipment at any given time without further notice, for example if an aircraft is out of service or for any other reason. As you booked a business class flight you will of course be in business class, but without QSUITES.
According to a Twitter message from Qatar Airways, you may in that case rebook your flight or get refund.
“If the change to non-Qsuite is verified, you are entitled to
1) one-time free change (+/- 21 days of the original date; new origin or destination within the same country or 500-mile radius from the original origin or destination);
and 2) refund without the cancellation fee”

2. How to check if a Qatar Airways flight offers the Qsuites?
All of Qatar Airways new Airbus A350-1000 and numerous A350-900s offer the QSuite Business Class product. More and more Boeing 777-300ER and a few 777-200LR of Qatar Airways aircraft offer Qsuites as well.
Qatar Airways has decided not to upgrade its Airbus A380 with the Qsuites!
The way you can tell if an aircraft has the QSuite Business Class cabin is from the seat map. We use ExpertFlyer to check the seat maps, SeatGuru works as well.
This is the seatmap you need to look out for, example 777-300er-
- If the seat map is showing a 1-2-1 cabin layout, like this….
…then the flight will be operated with a QSuite cabin.
- on the other hand if the seat map is showing a 2-2-2 cabin layout like this….
…then you’re looking at an older model Business Class cabin and NOT the QSuite cabin.
The A350-900 and 777-200LR Business Class cabins will also look very similar to the image above if they offer the QSuite product.

5. Book Qsuite award space using miles
Qatar Airways is a Oneworld member, that gives you a few choices for using airline miles to book a flight with Qatar Airways and their Qsuite.
Below a few good examples on how you can fly with Qsuites and how many miles/avios you would need for a flight. Of course many other routes are available, we just like to show you a few examples where you don't have to use 100,000s miles.
1. British Airways Avios:
British Airways award chart is distance-based, if a distance increases only by a few miles you will have to spend a lot more avios. Therefore, you need to know which airport to choose so that it still makes sense to buy a ticket with avios.
- Munich to Doha 38,750 Avios (off season) + 282.91€ for a one-way flight, or 77,500 Avios (off season) + 520.40€ for a return flight.
2. American Airlines AAdvantage:
- Doha to Europe: 42,500 miles for a one-way flight, or 85,000 miles for a return flight.
- Doha to the US: 70,000 miles for a one-way flight, 140,000 miles for a return flight.
