Thank you for saying this! I saw the same thing. $1725 LAX-SIN RT, but with the VISA code, the lowest price was $1789!!

It is al not just pivoted off your actual departure. In addition, Qatar say that there should not have been any earlier departure flight that same day which could have itself had a shorter lay-over. We got caught out by this on a HKT-DOH-CPH leg where our evening departure didn't qualify as there was also a 0835 one that day, despite our lay over being over 9 hours. It was only because my daughter and another child o board got food poisoning on the HKT-DOH flight that they relented (after a visit and drip at the Doha airport medical centre!).

Don't forget the first 76 hour holds will start to fall off tonight, should be good to check in the morning I think, if the availability you want isn't there today.

Do you think 2k p.P. is a good price for KUL - BOS ? Or did I made something wrong?

Hi - Planning Nested MR RT using this fare to start with any US city and return in 3 -5 days and head back in 3 -4 weeks and complete the MR.

Tried multiple combinations (using QR and other MR) but unable to get them correctly routed.

this what i am trying to do

outbound - xxx-DOH-SIN || yyy-DOH-xxx
inbound - xxx-DOH-yyy || SIN-DOH-xxx

xxx can be same city or open jaw
yyy can be same sity or open jaw.

Cannot pull this fare on ITA too.

Any pointers ??

Yeah - give it up! I don't think a nested MR will work with this particular fare sale. SIN appears to be the only destination that works ex-US, and the only two departure/return airports where it appears to work are IAH and LAX.

That said, you can fly cheaply via either SIN or KUL to basically anywhere in SE or South Asia -- plus Singapore and KL are close enough that you can travel between the two on an inexpensive bus trip, IIRC -- so you could just book two trips to/from SIN and then separate tickets for your final destinations.

The LAX-SIN is a good place to start, for the return look at CMB as a starting point (easy to get from SIN to CMB), or if you have time to make a longer positioning connection- CAI (good J deals CMB-CAI available too). ATL, IAH, LAX, ORD all possible US cities.

The only holds offers to me were 25 hour holds. Is this an ex-USA limitation? I know in the past i had 76 hour holds from non-USA origins.

No. JFK is fine. If you spend some time there is a lot there. For instance, JFK-DOH-AKL-DOH-JFK (the long, scenic route ) can be had for 2783 RT all as part of the "Business Promo". There appears to be good availability and each way earns ~20,000 QMiles.

Booked BKK-DOH-ATL-vv for 95,000 THB = $2700. Very happy with this fare, since I'm ATL based and can take advantage without a positioning flight. Considerably more attractive than the BKK-PVG-JFK tix on MU that I bought for a few thousand baht less.

Just did this last week. I was quite shocked at the value.
Does the connection have to be under 24hr to be qualified for paid STPC? If there are 2 people traveling on the same itinerary does each person have to pay $150? Thanks.
