Airbus A380

Economy Class

Space, comfort and clever design come together to deliver our A380 Economy Class experience. Higher ceilings on the main deck and a configuration that uses fewer seats all contribute to a real feeling of spaciousness.
The slim, elegant design of the seats offers more legroom, a greater angle of recline and contoured headrests. Our new generation in-flight entertainment system delivers one of the  world’s highest resolution of any Economy Class system on the 10.6” touch-screens.

Business Class

Qatar Airways was awarded Best Business Class by Skytrax in 2013 and 2014 and on our A380, Business Class will continue to be redefined.
The 1-2-1 configuration gives direct access to the aisle so that every seat in our A380 Business Class is an aisle seat. Enjoy greater comfort and generosity of space with our fully lie-flat seats that convert into a bed in the sky. You are always fully connected, via Wi-Fi and SMS and there is power at every seat for your laptop and personal devices.

First Class

The First Class cabin features ultra-wide seats tailored in the softest fabric and with signature design elements. Central and aisle dividers afford more privacy, which can be raised or lowered to provide a feeling of extra spaciousness when travelling with a companion.
It is a flexible space: the seat automatically reclines into a fully flat bed, or the table can be extended to allow two people to dine in style. Sleeper suits, flight slippers, and the finest amenities from renowned Italian fashion house Giorgio Armani add extra touches of luxury.


Our First and Business Class guests can enjoy our on-demand á la carte menu which means you can select from a full meal or a snack from an extensive range of options. A signature Caviar service and delicious Ladurèe desserts offer a tantalising culinary experience.
In Economy Class, you can enjoy a great selection of meals catering for a variety of tastes and preferences.

Sky Lounge

Our lounge is a sanctuary in the sky, the ideal place for First and Business Class customers to relax, read your favourite magazine, or just enjoy the ambience.
Under the stunning chandeliers, inspired by contemporary Arabian design, you’ll find fresh flowers gracing the lounge.
Enjoy a range of canapés and other delicious snacks while relaxing on one of our settees finished in European leather.
