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").

Besides AA, what's the best program to credit these to? It seems that BA no longer awards miles on R fares.

Thanks OP this is amazing. Doesn't look like LAX is in on this.

Note that you can split the outbound and return by 3 months. So you can turn this into two separate trips and bookend it. eg:

January: Use miles to get to SGN
January: SGN-DOH-HOU to fly home
April: HOU-DOH (skip the DOH-SGN leg and get a separate ticket somewhere else)
April: Use miles to fly home

Weird that the fare breakdown is $0 for the actual fare, then the rest are various fees and surcharges. When booking on the QR site it shows as a Golden Ticket, seems to be six seats allocated on each flight between SGN-DOH-SGN. Obviously there's not much demand for J paid between those cities so QR is flying planes with empty front cabins...this is an incentive to put people into those seats.

What about the no-show fee for those mentioning skipping the last leg or two?

Of the routes on sale, PHL and JFK feature A350 reverse herringbone, the rest are 777 and 2-2-2 I believe.

Booked SGN-DOH-ORD rt. Trying to find another rt in Y to make this work. Two trips to SGN should put me over the top for AA Exp (or get me really close).

JL or CX, 125% credit for R. Or credit right to QR for same amount.

Fare also works starting in Hanoi. When you do that you gain an automatic stop in BKK in both directions. I wonder if it's possible to just jump off in BKK and not take the last leg (of course assuming carry on luggage only)

Booking this fare in order to travel on specific plane type is asking for disappointment, given how QR runs things.
