Not all business class seats are created equal. Some are designed for those who want to work, while others are designed for sleep, or for a family traveling together. Whatever the purpose may be, the A380 business class seats on Qatar, Emirates and Qantas are definitely an experience on their own. They offer something for every type of traveler—a vacation within a vacation! Would you agree? Let’s take a look at what you can expect when aboard these three airlines in business class.
In 2013 and 2014, Qatar was named World’s Best Business Class by Skytrax. No surprise there, as the airline offers a one-of-a-kind luxurious experience for you to enjoy. Here are some highlights you can expect.
The seats are positioned in a 1-2-1 configuration, allowing you to access the aisle no matter which seat you get. You’ll experience the best comfort and fully lie-flat seats that convert into a bed. With Wi-Fi and SMS, you’ll always be connected. Each seat has a power outlet to keep all your electronics charged at all times. Plus, you’ll receive an exclusive Giorgio Armani amenity kit and designer sleepwear so you can arrive at your destination fresh and ready!
But that’s not all. You can eat from their on-demand á la carte menu, including their signature Caviar service and Ladurèe desserts. And if that’s not enough, go ahead and enjoy your favorite cocktail at their bar/lounge at the rear of the A380 business class cabin.

Emirates is an award-winning airline, especially for their business class cabin. Among the usual fully lie-flat beds, you can enjoy your personal mini-bar located on the side of your seat and while accessing over 2,500 channels. You can also stay refreshed while flying and when you arrive with their Indulgence by BVLGARI amenity kit (men receive a slightly different kit than women).
On the dining side, the gourmet dishes that are offered are inspired by the region. The chefs use local, organic produce and ingredients with their dishes that are paired with a great selection of fine wines. And if you’re looking for some away time from your seat, head over to the Onboard Lounge—exclusive to passengers in First Class and Business Class. Here’s a brilliant short video of the A380 business class cabin on Emirates that will make you want to take a flight on this plane over and over again!

Qantas was voted as the best airline in the Pacific region in 2015 and was one of the top 10 best airlines in the world according to Skytrax. Being an award-winning airline, it has a lot to offer, especially on its A380 business class cabin.
Their award-winning Skybed is more than comfortable. The seats have a back massager, perfect to release any stress during a flight, and a privacy screen so you can stay clear of your neighbor. No awkwardness there! On select routes, you can get the ‘business sleep service,’ where you’ll receive a new mattress and duvet (by request). It doesn’t stop there, a Kate Spade (Jack Spade for men) amenities kit will be provided, along with grey kangaroo-print pajamas. You won’t have to worry about being uncomfortable while sleeping, or having your clothes wrinkled up from the long flight.
Want to step away from your seat? No problem! You can head over a separate, furnished Business Lounge, that offers a 58cm LCD screen, perfect for meetings or just catching a game with other passengers on the flight. If you’re looking for a quick tour, here’s a business class video of a flight from Melbourne to Los Angeles aboard Qantas Airlines.
