Restaurant-style dining and seating will be featured aboard the largest aircraft in the world when it takes to the skies under the Qatar Airways banner.
At the travel trade show ITB Berlin this week, Qatar Airways released more details on the features of the newest addition to its fleet, the Airbus 380-800 -- the largest passenger jet in the world -- and the three different cabin classes that will span the plane’s two decks.

One of the more interesting features is a restaurant-style seating scheme that will allow First Class passengers to eat facing each other.
Seats also transform into a fully flat bed with a 90-inch seat pitch, and the entertainment system includes a 26-inch TV screen.
The plane will be used to operate the airline’s Doha to London Heathrow routes. The carrier has ordered 13 A380s. Virgin Atlantic offers an in-flight bar experience with its Upper Class Suite, which is decked out in Swarovski crystals.
