Surely if 1/10 is still the join date, we can expect an announcement next week?

It could also be October 4th when Qatar Airways will introduce its platinum level, equivalent to OWE. If October is confirmed we should hear of the date very shortly.

You can earn avios but no tier points until QR officially joins. The date hasn't announced yet.

Finally. Now the question is when OW will officially announce it, and if I can book QR flights as part of a DONE4 itinerary before they officially join.

They already have - that's where Aus BT got it.

As regards your round the world question:

I hope the next announcement is :
Double Avios when you fly with Qatar between 15/11 and 15/1 ? :)

Raffles Sep 9, 13 4:54 am

The big question should be:

Can Avios collectors redeem early, from October 1st, given that Qatar Privilege Miles collectors will be able to book BA rewards from October 1st?

Would be nice to have a go at Qatar's award availability ahead of all the other oneworld partners.

Great news. Congratulations all round for making this happen in record speed. That IT task must have been (probably still is) massive.

Now, what should we do with those 50,000 QR miles we have lying around which were about to expire.

Wozza2404 Sep 9, 13 5:13 am

QR's Platinum tier looks decent. Self and 2 guests for lounge access, AND 5 extra lounge passes per year.

Take note, BA.

You are right. I thought double miles on MH were offered from day 1. Much better if they follow the same scheme because it would cover the entire Christmas holiday period.
