ITB Berlin, the world’s largest travel exhibition, was the venue for the public unveiling of Qatar Airways new Boeing 787 interior. The actual first aircraft is expected to be unveiled at the Farnborough Air Show in July and shortly afterwards go into service on the airline's blue ribbon Heathrow – Doha route. Very noticeable to passengers will be the much larger than normal windows and ergonomic interior design.
Qatar Airways 787s will feature a total of 254 seats in a two-class configuration of 22 in Business Class and 232 in Economy. With a 1+2+1 configuration in Business Class, the aircraft layout features two less seats than competitors on conventional wide body aircraft, more typical of a First Class cabin where each passenger is assured of direct aisle access. The seats have been designed exclusively for Qatar Airways.
The seat offers considerable personal space – almost double existing business cabins – allowing passengers to sit back and relax in a 22-inch wide armchair that converts at a touch of a button into different cradle positions before reaching an extremely generous 80-inch long, 30-inch wide flat bed offering exceptional legroom. www.qatarairways.com also see Qatar reveals 787 interior - above
