Qatar Airways has announced that most – but not all – of its Manchester to Doha services will be operated by a new A350-900 from 28th October. This replaces a Boeing 787-8.
If you booked the amazing £1360 Manchester to Auckland business class deal earlier this year, check your bookings as you may want to change your seat selection.
The latest deliveries of A350-900 aircraft are coming with QSuite installed (the business class private seat with its own door). The first batch do not. Both have 36 seats in Business Class so Qatar Airways may decide that it can easily mix and match – if you’re lucky, you might get it. That said, the herringbone layout on the other A350-900 in Business Class is pretty good too.
Qatar Airways is also increasing its Manchester services from 16th September, going from 16 to 18 departures per week.
Remember that all Qatar Airways flights earn Avios and British Airways Executive Club tier points, as they are a fellow member of the oneworld alliance.
