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.

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").

You can also track the PNR at www.myflightsapp.com since it's an Amadeus confirmation - the ticket number should come through once it's available.

There we go. Quick and tidy. Done.
Everyone travels.

Im genuinely surprised ANYONE would thing they could put a error fare on hold.
Shocked really.
Very pleased that those that did, and then confirmed and ticketed were able to come along.. but honesty.. holding a error fare? That's crazy sauce.. book and change YOUR life for the ticket.

My response to Qatar would be, do you plan on updating the language on your website to state that holds are not guaranteed as promised? That would help to ensure that this doesn't happen again.

I'm all for the last sentence "change your life for the tickets!"

As I'm in BKK I think I'll take the 5th Freedom QR BKK-HAN and turn back on the same plane. Roughly 1:20h in HAN should be sufficient. Will do OLCI beforehand.

$129 ow, $209 rt (Y).

Well today has been a bit of a busy one in terms of phone-calls and information pressing, but I'm glad to hear and see FTers reporting their tickets are back and intact.

IT issues do happen occasionally, and sometimes those result in brief MMB lapses - as would appear to be the case with some of the Pho Fare tickets.

I'm going to disappear from this Thread, but I'm sure I'll see a few of you over on the QR Forum in the near future.

I thought the 5th freedom was BKK-HAN. To SGN it's PNH-SGN.... or am I missing something?

Thank you for all the insights you were able to provide us!

It looks like all ticketed reservations should be all honored, and held ones cancelled.

Happy travels everyone!!

When Qatar tweets out about a business class promotion, and then a golden ticket sales appears (which they've done in the past), there's no reason to believe that it's not a promotion and that the fare shouldn't have stayed valid for the held duration. You can't honestly call people crazy given the circumstances.

I don't think they are reinstating held reservations...I am in the same boat that you are, and hoping that they will. Are people getting notifications of the reinstatement or just checking online periodically?

Any information on approximately when the reinstatements are happening? Meaning is it rolling or did they all happen at once?

My tickets were held and then purchased at around 6am est.
