It's back: QR ARN-AKL 2050 usd rt/ai

Valid until the end of May as far as I can see. Books in R. The price includes the 15% discount on base fare once you subscribe to QR's mailing list. Be aware that some days you will find short connections while other days you'll need the STPC service and might go for a tour around DOH.

Minimum stay 5 days since departure. I booked leaving on thursday and flying back on Monday.

Example (without the 15% discount)

Great fare! And UK based members in particular don't forget to go via a cashback website such as topcashback for a further % off. Sometimes they don't pay out if you use a promo code but it's worth a try - they have done in the past for me.

And also.. that 0400 arrival time in AKL is awful!

Where does one find this 15%? I see where to sign up for the mailing list, and got the welcome email, but nothing about 15%

Much thanks

I want this. But having to position from the US means this is a week-long affair.

Similar price from OSL. Combine departure from OSL & return to ARN and save a few extra euros.

thanks OP. see if I can make this work. until when can it be booked?

I did the long layover to Adelaide last year and quite liked it. You are well looked after, I spent most of the day sleeping and relaxing and I arrived refreshed in Adelaide with almost no jetlag. If not pressed for time a good way to start a holiday IMHO.

Flew this on their Festival fare (same ~$2050 USD) from OSL in Feb.

Positioning from the US does add time, but the flights are great EQD-earners for AA. And 5 days in NZ barely scratches the surface! Tempted to go it again -- but for 2 wks+.

That was an earlier promotion. Here's the text from the website earlier this week:

Enjoy up to 15% off* on Economy and Premium Class tickets when you subscribe to the Qatar Airways newsletter by 30 April.*Terms and conditions apply
I can't see that on the site anymore, so it looks like the promo got pulled early

It was worth a shot! Thanks for sharing the link anyway.

May I ask did you find out about that promo on this forum or somewhere else?
