Sorry @alsl2246

I have edited my previous post

The A350-1000 will have 12 rows of QSuites but the A350-900 with QSuites have 9 rows.

The picture you show suggests its not QSuites. I believe Q Suites will show a staggered map.
If your flight is not QSuites then perhaps try to avoid row 6 as that that is the row immediately in front of the lavatories and the bar.

The upside is that its is very likely that the seat maps will change once the suggested Q Suites for QR915 becomes a reality. Announcements by airlines are not something anyone can usually rely on.

My Map
One question though, on the itinerary it says that the aircraft for Adelaide - Doha leg is A350-900 but Qatar website says that Adelaide to Doha(QR915) will have Q-Suite available from 16th of June 2019. Does that mean the aircraft will Change to A350-1000 down the line? Or are they introducing Q-Suite on A350-900 as well?
From the look of the seat plan, maybe it’s not QSuites, but this is quite dynamic as they implement them, so my advice is just hang loose.
I'm on QR915 ADL-DOH on 2 July, A350-900, and it has (or is promising :) ) Qsuites.

But on the date of your flight, Expert Flyer shows the same non QS map as you have shown, even though its still designated a A350-900. Don't know what's happening there.

Only some A350-900 will have QSuites.
Yes, thats the "staggered" seat map look of QSuites.

@RooFlyer
I reckon there will be some surprises when the passengers turn up on the day. The couples (assuming they are) who chose 1EF, 5EF, 7EF will be facing backwards.
And 1A as well.

Its not natural to be facing rearwards

Its also not Premium to be be cooped up into a small space. Legs in a tunnel is not for me
