Qantas Airbus A380 Business Class Seat Overview

There are two versions of Qantas A380 Business Class. Around half of the Qantas A380 fleet was refurbished in 2019-2020, however the cabin upgrade program was suspended due to COVID-19. In the meantime, you can tell which configuration you’re on by checking the seat map.
