Qatar Airways Business Class

Qatar Airways Business Class provides a comfortable and spacious environment for passengers. They offer an exceptional in-flight experience and are listed as a 5 star airline by Skytrax.

On top of the cabin experience, Qatar Airways offers a rare experience with their Premium Terminal at Doha International Airport exclusively for business and first class passengers. Making it a very attractive transit point and ideal hub of choice if not making Doha your final destination.

Business class seating on the Boeing 777’s is fully flat which is an enhancement on the angled lie-flat seats found on the long-haul Airbus aircraft. The product if fairly similar, though Qatar Airways has upgraded the product to the latest industry benchmark. It is likely that Airbus aircraft will be retrofitted in the future to have this fully flat business class seat.

Air Canada Executive First

Air Canada has introduced the next generation of Business Class seats into their international fleet. The airline totally skipped a ‘product range’ (angle lie-flat or ‘z-shape’ in design), going from cradle design straight to 180 degree flat.

In 2008 the Executive First Suite was listed by The Times newspaper in the United Kingdom as being amongst the world’s top 10 Business Class products.

The new product is a part of Air Canada’s complete transformation, where we have seen new branding, new aircraft and new in-flight products across the entire fleet in all cabins. They are placing great emphasis on customer service; it’s great to finally see that a North American carrier has identified this as a key to success.

Delta BusinessElite Intercontinental

Delta Air Lines has three variations of their BusinessElite for intercontinental travel. Two are fully flat seat products, one being on the 767-400 (76D) and the other on the long range 777-200LR. Recliner seats are on other intercontinental aircraft.

This product is for the Delta main line operation, not the Northwest Airlines aircraft that have been re-branded to Delta Air Lines livery.

The new BusinessElite is a step in the right direction for Delta, with other US carriers now featuring the next generation products there is a need to keep pace with the rest of the market. No doubt we will see Delta retrofitting more aircraft with the newer BusinessElite product.

The dining experience is created by celebrity chef Michelle Bernstein, a full 5 course dining menu. Wines are selected by Master Sommelier Andrea Robinson. The menu alters with the season’s.

Each flight experience starts before you step on the aircraft with the Delta Sky Club, it all surrounds the ideal of having you arrive at the final destination rested and refreshed. The environment you travel in enables passengers to sleep (there is new bedding including full size pillows and duvet comforter), eat, work and play.

There is personal in-flight entertainment, no matter what variation of the BuinessElite product you travel on, each seat also features in-seat power supply if wanting to work or utilise your own entertainment options.

We know our elite international business customers want the ultimate in high-flying comfort that only a true full-flat seat can give
