Original premium fare deal was for QR J class travel, originating in Vietnam (SGN and HAN) to several destinations across the Americas, Europe, and Africa. Travel period 8/2017 - 3/2018 inclusive, RT fares in the USD 500 - 700 range (USD $0.05 base fare).

Reports have now been circulating that all held, non-purchased fares have been canceled by the airline. Some held and then purchased fares were also canceled, but several reports indicate at least some of those have been re-instated.

For more information on flying Qatar Airways, visit the FT forum: Qatar Airways | Privilege Club. This thread in that forum is especially useful: Qatar Airways Forum Dashboard.

This wikipost is intended to help us better understand if there are any trends (by route, travel date, and/or held/ticketed status) in these cancellations. In all entries, please include: outbound or inbound departure date, origin-destination, original ticket status (only *if* "Held" or "Ticketed after Hold"), and current ticket status only *if* your ticket was cancelled ("Cancelled" or "Cancelled & Reinstated").

Managed to score a couple of these. Thanks op!!!

Now I hope that QR will 1) honor the ticketed ones, and 2) not cancel the ones I have on hold...

That's a lot of paranoia there.

Acted in good faith.

Qatar issues Tweet about new J promotion

Qatar releases golden tickets (they have done golden tickets in past on a few occasions, working the exact same way (i.e. one city that you have to find has deals to multiple destinations).

Tickets had full fare rules etc on them, it isn't some kind of test fare that shouldnt be booked.

I'd say the combination of actions from Qatar means we purchased these in good faith. I expect they are honored. It should be an easy small claims win if they don't.

Just called QR office and they said that it was a system error. Let's see if they will honor it

Interesting to see the outcome of this and how QR handles it.

I noticed this as well while holding two itins but couldn't ticket at that time.

Just purchased both and they remained at the $672 level. All of a sudden I might actually be able to maintain ExPlat.

You are joking right?

On a side note, it probably doesn't help when Lucky et al are now blogging/bragging about it a la 'Look what I just booked'. Why can't they just leave this alone until the dust settles and instead rub it in?

Booked SGN-ATL for $673, but still no e-ticket # showing up in CheckMyTrip. I *think* the payment processed correctly...
