Qatar’s revolutionary new business-class product launched on flights between Doha (DOH) and London (LHR) on June 24. TPG’s own Zach Honig was there to review the experience, and he found it to be just as amazing as we had hoped. The only downside? No Wi-Fi.

We knew from previous announcements that the airline was planning to install Qsuites on its flights between DOH and Paris (CDG) and then New York (JFK). Thanks to an ExpertFlyer aircraft change alert this morning, we now know exactly when you’ll be able to experience the product on the carrier’s flight #41 between DOH and CDG.

Qatar Qsuites debut DOH-CDG

If you want to fly on the first flight on September 23, it seems you’re going to have to pay in cash — there’s unfortunately no availability in business (or even economy) for the first flight. In fact, there’s no award availability on this flight at least through the end of September.

Once you’re able to book with miles, here are some ways you can do so:

  • Japan Airlines Mileage Bank: 42,000 miles one-way or 63,000 round-trip
  • American Airlines AAdvantage: 42,500 miles one-way
