QSuite has been a product that many of us have wanted to try for the longest time. The closest QSuite flight geographically to Singapore at the moment are flights departing from Bangkok to Doha.
Well, good news! As per Gulf Times, Qatar Airways will be flying their Airbus A350-1000 which features their flagship QSuite Business Class product on the Singapore – Doha route from 1 November 2018.
Two of three daily flights to receive QSuite equipped A35K
The inaugural A350-1000 flight from Singapore will depart at 0220 on 2 November 2018 as QR945. If you are flying into Singapore from Doha on 1 November 2018, QR944 will be the flight which will be operated by the A350-1000.
TPG has done a mini-video review of the QSuite cabin of the A350-1000 on his Instagram and if this doesn’t ‘wow’ you, I’m not sure what will.

The @qatarairways QSuite is the best business class in the sky- especially if you’re traveling in a group of four and can combine into a full “QSuite Quad”. The new @airbus A350-1000 has a 2 row mini-cabin, so if you’re a group of 8 it would basically feel like flying in your own private jet ✈️✈️ #todolist #avgeek #firstin1000 Video @zachhonig
Here’s the seat map for QR945 on 2 November 2018:
When the A350-1000 service to Singapore starts, only QR944 from Doha and QR945 from Singapore will be operated by the A350-1000. But from 1 December 2018, Qatar Airways will be operating two of their three flights daily between Singapore and Doha using the A350-1000.
Here are the flights which will be operated with QSuite:
Singapore – Doha
- QR947 (from 1 Dec 2018)
Doha – Singapore
- QR946 (from 1 Dec 2018)
Redemption options and availability
British Airways Executive Club, Asia Miles, Qatar Airways Privilege Club and Qantas Frequent Flyer are mileage transfer partners of credit cards in Singapore and you can redeem these miles for flights on Qatar Airways.
Here’s how much it’ll cost you to redeem a one-way Business Class ticket to Doha:
|Frequent Flyer Program||Miles Required|
|British Airways Executive Club||60,000|
|Qantas Frequent Flyer||65,000|
|Qatar Airways Privilege Club||67,500|
Award space in the month of November and December is almost non-existent on the QSuite equipped QR945 but you can find some award seats on QR944 ex-Doha in November.
In the month of December, there are dates where the QSuite equipped QR947 has at least 2 award seats available for redemption.
It’s really awesome that Qatar Airways will be sending their A350-1000 to Singapore from 1 November 2018 and demand for these flights will certainly be high.
QSuite is a product which has been raved about by almost everyone who has reviewed it and I’m seriously considering canceling my confirmed ticket with Singapore Airlines to fly with Qatar Airways for my upcoming holidays.
