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").

[FARE GONE]QR Business (R) SGN-Various USA/EU/South America from $553 USD RT

Just found amazing Business Promo fares from Ho Chi Minh City on Qatar to many (but not all) US destinations. Flight ticketed and confirmed, books into R class. Available on QR site as well as others. Long layovers in DOH on several routes, don't have time for many details, perhaps others can post. Off to look into booking more flights...

What happens if you buy the RT and abandon the return? Will QR still credit me the miles (crediting to AA)?

Can someone explain the no-show fee of $825? How do they charge you if you don't show up?

The economy and business class fares are identical. That seems... odd
