Qatar Air delays A350-1000 debut because luxury seat issues

Qatar Airways delayed taking Airbus SE’s newest wide-body jet because of problems with the carrier’s unique Qsuite seats, Chief Executive Officer Akbar Al Baker said, absolving the manufacturer of blame for the snag. The Persian Gulf company, which had been slated to take the first A350-1000 airliner last month, will do so in February once issues with the setup — which allows seats to be merged into one or face each other for meetings — have been resolved, Al Baker said Monday.
