MrsSgtRyan and myself are looking to go to Dubai for 4 nights during the upcoming June bank holiday weekend. As a result, we’d like to fly business. My first choice would be to fly Qatar from LHR and from checking their prices they have a special on at the moment for £1678 which I think is pretty good.
I’ve checked Etihid and they are having fares at £1800 (there abouts) but they give a free hotel for 1 night and then a massive reduced rate for a second night, which is kind of bending me towards them.
Does Qatar offer any kind of free night hotels or any kind of the same deal at all? I’ve rang the UK reservation number to get advice and the guy on the phone didn’t have a clue as to what I was talking about.
Lastly, would it be cheaper to fly from anywhere else in Europe? I note that Emirates direct from LHR is £3k yet if you fly from Rome its only £1,500.
PS. Is there a massive difference in flying the A330 or 777 in business?
