Yes, ticketed, seats assigned etc.

This may be a naive question how do we know that this was a indeed a planned, deliberate flash sale, especially as the bookings were available thru BA, but not (as I understand) QR?

We only know what the airlines tell us. Qatar has form for business class flash sales of exactly this sort of thing, though: 2015 CPH-BKK ~850, 2016 OSL-BKK ~600, 2017 BRU-TYO 550...

Cheers. How does QR communicate these flash sales? What is the best way to get first-hand news?

Probably this forum, but the usual blogs are pretty fast at spreading the news too.

This particular one was a BA fare, not a QR fare.

Arrow Moderator warning

Before I move this to the Discussion Forum I would like to remind members that you are allowed to discuss the fare. Off topic discussions about blogs are not allowed, but feel free to visit the External Miles and Points Resources Forum.

There have been multiple Rule 12 violations. Kindly review Rule 12, which I have posted for your convenience:

12. Abusive Or Disruptive Behavior Or Content

12.1 Friendly, Respectful and Welcoming

FlyerTalk is a community and is intended to be a friendly, helpful and collegial place.

Please post in a friendly, respectful, welcoming manner. 'Snarky,' unfriendly posts will not be allowed. If you don't have something constructive to contribute to a thread, please do not post.

Unhelpful posts, such as "Do a search" or those that merely comment on the worthiness of others' posts or threads are neither friendly nor welcoming and will not be allowed. If you can't be helpful or contribute substantive content to a thread, please refrain from posting.

12.2 Avoid Getting Personal

If you have a difference of opinion with another member, challenge the idea NOT the person. Getting personal with another member is not allowed. Personal attacks, insults, baiting and flaming will not be tolerated.

FlyerTalk is a diverse, multi-cultural community. Expressions of prejudice or discrimination in any form are not permitted (such as those concerning race, nationality, religious belief, gender, sexual orientation, age, disability, etc).

If another member gets personal with you, do not retaliate. Retaliation may well subject you to the same discipline. Instead, please use the 'Alert a moderator to this thread' button in the lower-left-hand-corner of each post, send a note explaining your concern to the moderator team, and leave it to them to handle. Please also see Rule 22 When you believe someone has violated the rules.

12.3 Disruptive or repetitive posting

Posts that are inflammatory, inciting or unnecessarily provocative are not allowed.

Disrupting a forum by repetitively posting comments of the same general theme or 'piling-on' by posting merely to reinforce or bump a prior post of a disruptive nature are both examples of disruptive posting and not permitted.

In terms of BA coming back to cancel the tickets? Seemingly so, I have seen no reports of this happening.

My trip is not until February so not worrying about add-ons as yet.

In case you didn't see in the news or over on the BA forum. The BA website was compromised during the booking period for this. I for one have had some dubious credit card activity since making this booking, which now makes sense if you see the news.

Check you credit card accounts and change those ba.com passwords just in case!
