Travelling for work can be a pain in the neck (literally and figuratively). Suffering jet-lag on top of all that, while going cross-continental is no fun, especially when you’ve an important business meeting to prepare for.

In order to ensure that the time you spend cooped up on a plane remains relatively painless, Qantas A330 is one of the few airplanes that provides a lie-flat bed for its passengers in a 1-2-1 layout within business class, called Business Suites. Created in collaboration with Australian industrial designer Marc Newson, the Business Suites are designed for convenience, privacy and stylish comfort.

Qantas’ Business Suites provide plenty of legroom and lie-flat beds for well-rested travel.

But it gets better. During take-off and landing, you’re allowed to stay fully reclined. On top of that, there is a ‘Do Not Disturb’ function that you can activate, allowing you to snooze without interruptions after your satisfying meal.

Good food on board is crucial in attaining satisfaction and deep slumber. To ensure this, Qantas has brought in Australian celebrity chef Neil Perry — who is also the airline’s creative director of food, beverage and service — to design its new Spring menu. This ardent pursuit for perfection also shows through with Qantas’ in-flight catering — it takes 11 months to create its four menus that appear seasonally.

Passengers get to enjoy the latest movies and music options on a 16-inch touchscreen. While the quality of the flight plays a huge part in your experience, preparing for a long-haul flight is equally important. With over 31 Qantas lounges worldwide, you can enjoy a shower, food and a good pampering before your take-off.

Qantas’ new Business Suites are definitely something you’ll want to take for your next trip to Australia.
