KATHMANDU: Qatar Airways won two awards at the recent Australian Business Traveller Awards. The Doha-based carrier’s superjumbo A380 Lounge was named ‘Best Inflight Lounge’ and the airline also picked up the ‘Best Economy Class’ accolade for its A350 Economy Class cabin, as per a press statement issued on Thursday. Qatar Airways’ A350 Economy Class cabin was named Best Economy Class as it ‘cleverly marries the overall sense of space in the Airbus A350 cabin with an economy seat that’s a generous 18 inches wide, with ample room around the knees for even the tallest traveller’, the statement quoted David Flynn, editor of the Australian Business Traveller, as saying. In addition to wider seats in Business and Economy Classes, the aircraft is also quieter and features advanced air conditioning technology coupled with mood lighting to reduce passenger fatigue after a long flight. Qatar Airways’ elegantly designed A380 on-board lounge was also named ‘Best Inflight Lounge’ by the Australian Business Traveller Awards. The lounge on board the airline’s bespoke A380 superjumbo was praised for ‘offering travellers a social space where they can mix and mingle and boasts an undeniably private jet vibe’
