Qatar keeps Qsuite cabin on Bangkok-Doha route through March 2019

The Qsuite is set to stay on one of Qatar's Bangkok flights, with their new lounge at the airport likely to shift to 24 hour opening

Greetings from the Air Canada lounge at Frankfurt airport. In less than an hour I’ll be boarding the Qatar Airways Qsuite on the Airbus A350-1000 to Doha and it’s certainly an exciting feeling to be trying out this fantastic looking new product.

There’s some more good news for those of you waiting patiently for your turn to try this ‘First in Business’ experience – one of the daily Qatar Airways Doha-Bangkok flights currently featuring the Qsuite, which was scheduled to revert to the older cabin configuration from 28th October, will now continue to be served by a Qsuite equipped Boeing 777 through the end of the northern winter season in March 2019.

This provides you even more opportunity to experience the Qsuite within easy reach of Singapore, and will supplement a daily Singapore-Doha A350-1000 Qsuite flight from 2nd November this year. See our article from last week about that service, which will ramp up to two daily Qsuite aircraft by December.

The schedule

From 28th October the Qsuite will continue to feature on the Bangkok – Doha route as QR831, a morning departure from Bangkok arriving into Doha at lunchtime.

On the Doha – Bangkok sector QR830 carries the Qsuite, with overnight service departing around 8pm for a 7am arrival into Bangkok the next morning.

Here is the full current summer schedule for this route, and the new winter schedule coming into force on 28th October. Note also that an additional 7th daily service is introduced for the winter season (QR838/839), though unfortunately this does not feature the Qsuite.

Qsuite flights are those highlighted (QR830/831) in each case.
