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

Take note, BA.

It's also far harder to achieve than BA Gold...

Ok, compare it to GGL. Those passes are still a huge benefit.

Makes you wish BA had kept Open Doors for Golds, eh?

Tier Points and Avios on Qatar?
 
As announced today Qatar is to join Oneworld from the 30th October. If I Book flights now for December with Qatar will I be eligible for Tier points etc?

Thanks

Yes, theoretically flights flown once they are oneworld will earn TPs and Avios.

Although not mentioned, they normally have a two month window at the beginning where you earn double avois on new members.

ironmouse Sep 9, 13 2:51 pm

that being the case, would that mean BAEC flying on a QR flight would get double Avios?

The earning chart though is just for partners and not one world members right? This should change to award tier points as well when they join one world?

You will definitely be able to earn Avios and Tier Ponts.

This is going to provide some interesting TP runs on intra GCC routes. AUH-DMM via DOH is usually available very cheaply in J on QR. No doubt there will be plenty of other similar routes.

Can I redeem my avios right now for a QR flight in FEB 2013?

On one of the press releases a start date of 1st October was stated for Avios redemptions.

QR has stated that Privilege Club members can redeem on BA as and from 1 October. BA has not yet said when BAEC members can redeem on QR - though this will definitely happen from October 30.
