See that grainy picture up above? That’s Qatar’s A350 landing at Philadelphia International Airport for the very first time. While the plane officially launched from the US with a JFK departure on December 10, this is the first regular scheduled flight. As of now, the A350 will fly from PHL to Doha every day of the week.

Currently, the A350 is on its way back to Doha. The plane is a huge step up from the 777 Qatar previously flew on that route, with much larger 1-2-1 seats in business class, a roomier cabin design, more amenities in coach and many other goodies. If you’re looking to travel from Philadelphia to the Middle East or India (or even Southeast Asia), Qatar’s A350 is by far the most luxurious option.
