Situated towards the rear of the business-class cabin, the lounge features a pair of large sofas, striking ceiling lights and a specially designed bar area. Fellow Gulf carrier Emirates is famed for the Aim Aviation-manufactured horseshoe-shaped bar on its A380s, but Qatar believes its offering can match that of its rival.

Qatar will configure its double-deckers in a three-class layout, with eight first-class seats, 48 places in the business-class cabin and a total of 461 economy-class berths. Of the latter, 56 are located on the upper deck and will be offered to the airline's frequent fliers first.
