If you’ve been drooling over Qatar’s Qsuite since the product first debuted in 2017, we get it. Whether it’s between Hong Kong (HKG) and Doha (DOH), or between Doha and London (LHR), travelers consistently rave about the top-notch product, from service to seat. And if you can’t get enough of the experience, you’ll be pleased to know that the Middle East carrier is launching Qsuite on the longest route it flies, between Doha and Auckland (AKL).

At 9,074 miles one-way, this route is the second-longest in the world, just behind Singapore’s 9,535-mile SQ21 from Singapore (SIN) to Newark (EWR). According to One Mile at a Time, Qsuite will be available every other day beginning May 15 (here’s how to check), and daily beginning May 31.

QR920 departs Doha at 2:35am and arrives in Auckland at 4:05 am
QR921 departs Auckland at 2:25pm and arrives in Doha at 11:15 pm

TPG‘s Emily McNutt flew the DOH to AKL route in Qatar’s economy product last year. Even flying more than 9,000 miles in coach, she says that she “discovered a world of comfort in the rear of the aircraft. Like way, way back, in the depths of the economy cabin.”

Qatar’s Qsuite won the TPG Awards category for Best International Business Class with incredibly private suites that are beautifully designed. Alongside of the hard product comes top-notch service, a premium food and beverage program and hotel-quality bedding. The inflight entertainment also leaves very little to be desired.
