Adding a data point on my CAI-DOH-BKK (First/Business tix)

I waited for my booking to change to "Unconfirmed" status as I was told previously the rep cannot do anything to a confirmed booking. It went "unconfirmed" 7 days prior to the travel date. I then dialed US #.

I was told the rule, as others have stated, that I have to wait 72h before they can reroute on OW airlines or 24h for other airlines. I then asked how about FCO and IST on QR? The nice rep checked and said okay. Since I will be in Paris, I then asked (I was sure it wouldn't work but didn't hurt to ask), how about CDG-DOH, even in Y... She checked and that was no go. Anyways, I am very happy with the new routing FCO-DOH-BKK (Dreamliner J to A380 J).

Kudos to QR. As to my return BKK-DOH-CAI, since I have to fly to CAI, I will wait until 72h or 24h. I am hoping for perhaps SQ to SIN to IST then TK to CAI.

In summary, I changed CAI-DOH-BKK to FCO-DOH-BKK.
