The flight, which is scheduled to leave the Argentine capital on Tuesday, October 5, is the latest in a series of special repatriation flights to help bring home Australians who have become stranded overseas, with their first stop in the Northern Territory’s Howard Springs quarantine camp.

And it will be a long flight – even longer than Qantas’ flagship route from Perth to London (which could also end up being Darwin to London, at least in the short term, if Western Australia keeps its state borders locked tighter than a drum).

The Perth-London marathon is the airline’s longest commercial service, with the Boeing 787-9 flying 14,498 kilometres – just 185 kilometres short of the Buenos Aires flight, which will also be handled by a red-tailed Dreamliner.

A standout feature of the Qsuite Next Gen is its redesigned Quad Suite, which is equipped with movable 4K OLED Panasonic Astrova IFE screens—a world-first for any airline. These state-of-the-art screens can be repositioned to the side, creating the largest social and productivity space in the sky.

This setup allows for up to four passengers to enjoy a spacious and flexible environment in the Quad Suite, while the Companion Suite accommodates up to two passengers.

The Qsuite Next Gen will be introduced on Qatar Airways’ Boeing B777-9 aircraft starting in 2025. This new suite configuration not only includes innovative window dual suites but also features a unique combination of quad, duo, and companion suites, each designed with the latest technologies for increased passenger convenience and connectivity.

Customization options are abundant, with enhanced ambient lighting, privacy controls, and upgraded touchscreen Passenger Control Units that offer a more personalized experience.

One notable change in the Qsuite Next Gen is the integration of the TV screens into the suite’s barrier system. Instead of traditional dividers that need to be lowered, these screens serve as part of the barrier and can be folded away when not in use.

However, Qatar Airways has confirmed that these advanced seats will not be retrofitted onto older aircraft. As Qatar Airways continues to evolve its fleet, the airline is focusing on reducing the number of non-Qatar-branded leased aircraft and phasing out the oldest models.
