NY, New York – Qatar Airways and Airbus gave a sneak peek to very few people as they showed off the upcoming A380 Lounge, which will be featured on all Qatar 10 A380. The First of 3 Airbus A380 are set to be delivered in June; where Qatar plans to deploy them on route to the likes of London-Heathrow – Tokyo and Los Angeles in the near future.
As Qatar continue to try their best to keep up with Emirates; the lounge, and the A380 cabin design add great value and appeal to the airline and those who love Emirates Air Line products and looks but just don’t like their service, will feel right at home with Qatar. The lounge, which is located on the upper deck of the aircraft behind Business Class, is deck-out with sofas, a bar for the passengers and beautiful lights that will only make the passengers feel extra special. Qatar A380 Lounge is beautiful and it will sure be an experience for the passengers who spend their thousand and thousands of dollars to ride on it.
Qatar A380 will see a 3 class configuration – 8 first class seating, 52 business class seats and 457 economy class seats, where 56 of those are on the second floor of the superjumbo aircraft. The recently joined OneWorld Airline currently has 10 SuperJumbos on order and is the launching customer for Airbus latest aircraft the A350. Where they ordered 80 frames splitting them between models the -900(dash nine hundred) and -1000(dash one thousand).
Qatar is scheduled to take delivery of the Double Decker Super Jumbo this summer, as well as the brand new A350XWB where the airline has plans to deploy them first on the route to New York-JFK from the airline hub at Doha. Qatar currently has a total of 131 airframes and operates almost all modern types of aircraft from both Boeing and Airbus; aside from the NG 737. 8 of 131 aircraft operates for Qatar Cargo. 214 aircraft on order with 48 options; means Qatar Fleet will see some very new and modern aircraft not to even mention the 777X which they plan on ordering.
