Innovation in cabin design is vital for the world’s leading airlines, said Mr Yan Derocles, an analyst at Oddo Securities in Paris.
New business-seat offerings are being devised for both models, Mr Al Baker said.
“You can take your honeymoon on Qatar Airways, but you’ll have to keep silent,” chief executive officer Akbar Al Baker joked after revealing the seat at the ITB Berlin travel show.
The upgraded business cabin will also be standard on Airbus Group SE A350-1000 wide-bodies slated for handover from the end of this year, as well as some older A350-900s.

Qatar Airways has revealed all-new business class suites with sliding ‘privacy doors’ and middle seats which convert into a double bed.
Alongside the new Qsuites, Qatar Airways promises to introduce upgrades to business class “dining, amenities, entertainment and service.”
Qatar Airways will retain first class only on its Airbus A380 superjumbos, with all other aircraft topping out at business class, but is considering updating the first class design to create fully-private suites.
Australian Business Traveller is attending ITB Berlin as a guest of Qatar Airways.
Qatar Airways will also “aggressively retrofit” the new suites across its existing its Airbus A350 and Boeing 777 fleets at a rate of one aircraft per month.
