Qantas A350 First and Business Class Cabins Revealed

One of the only negatives about living in Australia for travellers is just how isolated we are from the rest of the world. Flights can be a struggle at the best of times, but even more so when it’s long and gruelling with a simple flight to Los Angeles taking upwards of 12 hours. However, that’s where the Qantas A350 is changing the game. With a premium aircraft capable of flying from Australia to almost anywhere in the world in absolute comfort.

After committing to direct flights from the east coast of Australia to Europe and New York (dubbed ‘Project Sunrise’) the routes have now become a reality. Qantas is revolutionising Australian air travel, not only with these unbelievable long-haul capabilities but with the new A350 First and Business Class cabins that come part and parcel with this new aircraft. Let’s take a closer look.

First up, the plane itself. Project Sunrise will deliver more direct routes to Australia, significantly reduced point-to-point travel time and a flying experience like none other, with a sleek and spacious cabin (the lowest seat count of any A350-1000 in service, with only 238 in total).

Combine that with interior design influenced by medical and scientific research carried out on research flights to maximise comfort and well-being inflight. Point in case, the new Wellbeing Zone, which is a dedicated space for movement and refreshments, and complimentary high-speed Wi-Fi.

Former Chief Executive Officer and Managing Director Alan Joyce comments, “For more than 100 years, Qantas has been at the forefront of transforming the way the world travels, particularly through direct flights.”

“Now, the A350 and Project Sunrise will make almost any city in the world just one flight away from Australia. It’s the last frontier and the final fix for the tyranny of distance that has traditionally challenged travel to Australia.”

But what we’re most interested in is the new and improved Business Suite on board this incredible aircraft. Designed for privacy and comfort, the Qantas Business suites will feature a sliding door as well as an adjustable divider between the alternating centre seats. If this isn’t luxurious enough, there’s also a large dining table and work surface and increased storage options.

Once on board, kick back and enjoy an 18-inch entertainment touchscreen with Bluetooth audio connectivity, a cushioned leather ottoman and an 80” (2m) long and 25” wide flatbed (even longer than the A380 First flatbed!) – if you’re lucky enough to fly business, of course. 

Feeling excited? The inaugural flights are scheduled for take-off in late 2025, starting with Sydney to London and New York.
