Qatar Airways confirmed on Thursday it will remove first class facilities on four A340-600 aircraft to accommodate more economy seats. In a statement, the Doha-based airline told Arabian Business that first class lounges on the planes will be stripped out to make way for 40 economy seats from this September. The additional seats will boost capacity on each aircraft from 216 to 256 economy seats. The eight first class and 42 business class seats will not be affected by the changes, the airline said.
