Qatar unveils A380 first class lounge and bathroom

29 Apr 2014 by GrahamSmith

Qatar Airways has released images of its forthcoming A380-800 first class lounge and bathroom interiors.

Strangely, the airline also states these facilities are for the use of business passengers. If so, they would be the most luxurious lounge and bathroom interiors currently open to business class in the sky.

Akbar Al Baker, Qatar Airways' CEO, said his carrier's A380 product is bound to create a new benchmark in in-flight experience.

He said: "Unrivalled onboard passenger comfort is an increasingly important differentiator and is becoming a fundamental deciding factor driving passenger choice – and Qatar Airways has designed its A380 with this firmly in mind."

The bathrooms will include features such as modern taps that are sensor operated and large square modern sinks that help to maximise space.

Qatar Airways yesterday announced that it will deploy its first A380 onto its Doha to London Heathrow route from June 17 (see news, April 28).

The airline, which has 13 superjumbos on order, first revealed it would fly the A380 to LHR when it debuted its first class cabin at last month's ITB trade fair in Berlin (see news, March 5).
