The airline's Paris and NY routes will be the next to see the Q Suite, with Qatar Airways' fleet being retrofitted at a rate of one aircraft a month.

Paris- A boycott by four Arab nations will not halt Qatar Airways' growth or plans to accept delivery of new aircraft, it said on Monday, adding it was seeing demand return after an initial downturn.

Qsuite, patented by Qatar Airways, features the industry's first-ever double bed available in Business Class, with privacy panels that stow away, allowing passengers in adjoining seats to create their own private room.

One of the world's fastest-growing airlines, Qatar Airways recently added Dublin, Republic of Ireland, to its global route network, soon to be followed by Nice, France; Skopje, Republic of Macedonia and Chang Mai, Thailand.

Qatar Air is "making sure that all our business streams are properly documented in order for us in future to go to global tribunals to reflect the pain", Al Baker said Monday at the Paris Air Show. The fleet includes a mix of Boeing and Airbus planes, including the superjumbo A380, the world's largest airliner. The A380 flights include 26-inch entertainment screens, seats almost 2-feet wide and privacy partitions. The award-winning alliance was named the World's Best Airline Alliance 2015 by Skytrax for the third year running. Ben Smith, Air Canada president of passenger airlines, said the honor "reinforces and validates what we've been working for for so long". The CEO added that he's unsatisfied with the International Civil Aviation Organization's response to what he says is in an illegal action unparalleled since the Soviet operation against Berlin during the height of the Cold War, which prompted the U.S.to lead an airlift of supplies to the German city.

Air Canada is Canada's largest domestic and worldwide airline serving more than 200 airports on six continents. "We also want to recreate ourselves as a digital airline and use technology to drive more value". "That, I think, gives us an edge". In addition, Azul was also named for the second consecutive year as the victor of the Best Airline Staff in South America award. The survey covered 320 airlines worldwide and evaluated nearly 50 indicators across ground and airport services, on-board product and cabin service.

Benjamin Smith, President, Passenger Airlines at Air Canada, said: "This award, based on the opinions of nearly 20 million air travellers worldwide, shows customers are enthusiastically embracing the significant investments Air Canada is making in its products and services".
