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.

As these legs would be under 2000 miles they'd only get 40 TP for each leg. So unless you're based over there you'd be better off heading to the US and taking advantage of AA domestic F.

I was thinking of my own personal circumstances. I'm in the GCC a lot, so switching direct flights on EY to 2-leg QR flights might be a great way to pick up 160TPs on flights I'd have normally received nothing for (from BAEC).

GGL and Lifetime Gold, make way for the Wozza!!! :D ^

To SIN, HKG, BKK etc. people not based in the UK will earn 4x 140 TPs flying with QR rather than 2x 40+2x 140 with BA.
And best of all, don't have to put up with Afternoon Tea on the feeder flight :)

I Believe QR has 787s from most European destinations now.

Very few*, I would have thought. Some European destinations are still A320/A321 destinations!

*Shamelessly stolen from a QR forum thread:

Current Boeing 787 Routes:
Doha – Bangalore 1 daily
Doha – Copenhagen 1 daily
Doha – Delhi 1 daily
Doha – London Heathrow 1 daily
Doha – Frankfurt 2 daily
$ Doha – Jeddah 5 – 7 weekly (Service extended until 01NOV13)
Doha – Munich 1 daily (2 daily from 01JUN13)
Doha – Oslo 1 daily
$ Doha – Riyadh 4 – 5 weekly (Service extended until 01NOV13)
Doha – Stockholm 1 daily
Doha – Zurich 1 daily

European destinations without 787:
Athens, Barcelona, Belgrade, Berlin, Bucharest, Budapest, Brussels, Geneva, Istanbul, Madrid, Manchester, Milan, Moscow, Paris, Rome, Sofia, Venice, Vienna, Warsaw, Zagreb

Those I care about, nothing else matters :p
+ London and Paris will get the A380 with First Class

Well being in Moscow I get a shed load of alternates and its over 2000M to DOH from DME, so its usually 140+140 wherever I go and some crazy cheap prices... though if I want uber cheap, I need to wait for Shrilanken..

Slow and steady wins the LPGS...

QR 2 class hopper flights are classed as Economy and First. I wonder if this will be another AA situation where you get 60TPs rather than 40?

Interesting, but which routes are you talking about ?

Specifically DOH-DMM in this example.

They're also about half the price of BA to the Far East.

American has posted on Facebook that you can redeem AA miles on Qatar from 23 September!

Avios access may therefore happen on 1 October.

Quite. Priced up a BKK trip yesterday for November. 1800 return in J with a 1 week stop in DOH. 560 TPs, too.
