Qatar Airways is bringing its incredibly popular Qsuite business class seat to another sector of its fleet.

Seatmaps show that the airline is set to introduce Qsuite on its 777-200LR next month. Starting June 2, Qatar will start flying its first Qsuite-equipped 777-200LR between Doha (DOH) and Houston (IAH).

Since there's only one 777-200LR with the Qsuite cabin, the aircraft will operate every other day. On the opposite days the route will be serviced by a 777-300ER with Qatar's old business class.

Qatar has been retrofitting its fleet, mainly its 777-300ERs, and the 777-200LRs are the next group to get the new and improved business class. The airline currently operates nine passenger 777-200LRs. You can find Qsuite on all A350-1000s and on select 777-300ERs and A350-900s.

Unfortunately there is some bad news: Qatar will be following the trend of other airlines to go 10-across in economy. It already announced it'd be retrofitting the 777-300ERs to feature a 3-4-3 configuration, and it's doing the same with its 777-200LRs.

TPG Editor-at-Large Zach Honig says Qatar's Qsuite is the best business class product in the world — and yes, Qsuite is bookable with miles. You can book flights from the US to Doha for 70,000 American miles one-way.
