Qatar Airways first class loungeLast week Qatar Airways revealed its new on-board first class lounge product. Showcased at the ITB Berlin travel convention, the airline’s new A340-600 fleet (delivery of which  will commence  later this year) will be equipped with  a dedicated first class lounge. Features include a stand-up bar with drinks rack and spotlight mood lighting, and cream leather sofas that can seat up to six passengers. Qatar Airways chief executive Akbar Al Baker is quoted as saying:
We cannot rest on our laurels which is why we are taking significant steps forward in both our image and product offering. This is the first livery change since Qatar Airways’ relaunch in 1997. Over the next few weeks and months, we will be unveiling further details of our onboard product on the A340-600 and I promise they will be revolutionary in design and style.
