The future of luxury air travel: The QSuite

If you want to treat yourself, you should jump into the new Qatar Airways 'Qsuite', a business class experience with a difference.

The new Qsuite was launched in Berlin on Thursday during ITB, the world's largest travel show, and it's raised the flight game in a big way.

In a first for business class travel, the 20-year-old airline has designed partitioned suites, which provide each passenger - or even a whole family - with a private section throughout the flight.

The introduction of these suite seats with closing doors is part of a trend by airlines to provide a roomier business class experience. 

The suites can then be conjoined to create a double bed, or if you're flying with friends and family, a "cabin within a cabin" - where four individual suites turn into a private communal space.

If that wasn't luxury enough, the seats will be finished with hand-stitched Italian leather and satin rose gold and passengers on night-time flights will be gifted pyjamas by The White Company.

The company has yet to reveal the cost of the QSuites, which will be rolled out into the airline's existing planes from June onwards, at a rate of about one plane per month.

With 194 aircraft in its current fleet, it may be some time before passengers are able to experience the luxury.
