I had posted earlier about looking for award seats to JNB or CPT from the US in April/May. I am finding good availability on QR from BOS, JFK, PHL, IAD and ORD. My problem is that the only QSuites seem to be JFK-DOH. I have read that QR 725/726 from ORD and other flights have been changing to QSuites, but when I look up the seating charts on Qatar’s website, they show A350-900 or 777 without the suites and many without the completely flat beds.
I’m pretty sure all of Qatars A350 and 777 at least have fully flat beds. The only ones that don’t are A330s, and those don’t fly to the US
On QR744 (BOS-DOH), for example, Qatar’s website says that it is a 777-300ER and the business seats have a 78″ pitch and a 177 degree recline. I have never flown in that plane and don’t know what the seats are like. Even if they are close to lay flat, I’d really prefer to experience a QSuite.
I am surprised though on how much business award availability there is from the US to Doha.The savings compared to BA awards is huge.
