Qatar Airways will fly its first Airbus A380 to London on June 17, with the inaugural A380 flight of QR003/004 taking off from Doha’s new hub at Hamad International Airport.
The airline promises that London will be followed by other "popular routes, especially in slot-constrained airports."
Qatar has 13 A380s on order, with the second and third superjumbos arriving mid-year.
There's also a 26 inch (48cm) personal HD video screen and companion dining seat.
Also on the upper deck are 48 business class seats featuring a near-identical design to their siblings on Qatar's Boeing 787 fleet.
The lounge area also serves to insulate Qatar's premium passengers from the 56 economy seats perched at the rear of the upper deck.
These upstairs mini-cabins are quite popular with savvy travellers, and it's believed that Qatar will cannily allocate these seats as first priority to top-tier members of its Privilege Club frequent flyer scheme as well as Oneworld partner airlines including Qantas and British Airways.
The lower deck is given over entirely to 405 economy class seats configured in a 10-across 3-4-3 layout.
This is part of Qatar's goal to maximise each aircraft's flying time and achieve a minimum connecting time of just 30 minutes between flights.
Built on 2200 hectares of mostly reclaimed land, the $15 billion airport will include a dedicated terminal for the sole use of first class and business class passengers.
