 揟his year we have launched six new destinations in our expanding global network and these 787s will enable even more of our passengers to experience the genuine difference offered by travelling in one of the world抯 latest aircraft, said Qatar Airways Group Chief Executive, Mr. Akbar Al Baker. 揟he larger windows with custom dimmers, the lower altitude cabin pressure with rapid air circulation, and the very latest in IFE and seat technology all provide our passengers with the five-star experience that they have come to expect from us as one of the world抯 leading airlines.

Qatar Airways 787 has 254 custom-made seats across its Business and Economy Class cabins with specially designed interiors. Business Class is configured 1𣇻 with 22 seats, while Economy has 232 seats in a 3𣛩 layout. All seats in Business Class are fully reclinable.
