Any J fares from Oslo to Cardiff? I hear Cardiff Bay is the new Sukhumvit Soi 11 and Bangla Road replacement.

Sorry - on phone with slow sporadic internet. Really not easy to go through qatars website properly.
If you see the red star it is already the discounted fare.

And yes it works with promo fares too. Last week I was looking for a flight but not booked because it was to expensive.
Yesterday I saw cheaper promo fares available and get additionally 15 % off.

MASTERCARD definitely works on Promo fares. Brings ARN-AKL down to £1650 on my dates. Very tempting.

Indeed! Lot's of dates for £1650/1800e/17800SEK. Pretty close to the AKL launch sale prices. Too bad that Feb/March is not available yet.

  • Krabi (KBV): 12.149 SEK

  • Phuket (HKT): 20.349 SEK
The price difference between KBV and HKT is striking - if I wanted to go to Phuket a cheap ground transfer between KBV and Phuket would be the solution. The KBV fare is very good

Got ARN-DOH-KBV (Krabi) RT for $1,272 with MasterCard discount in October. 19 hours in Doha on the outbound so hopefully that will qualify for the free transit hotel from QR.

Only if there is no operated alternative (regardless of fare or even availability).

Luckily for me, there IS a later flight from ARN but there is only one flight to KBV, so both layovers (taking earlier flight or later flight) are over 8 hours.

We Booked November over Thanksgiving going to BKK

I just got back from that USA-SIN deal for $1800 sale back in January, got addicted to QR J and saw this one

Found a cheap BA flight through AA from DEN-LHR and onto ARN for $600 in Y so not bad leaving from the USA and getting all AA miles

Personally looking at either the BKK route or the SIN route. If BKK you'd get to fly on the 787, A380, and 777 to sample the various Biz hard products. Flying to SIN gets you the 787 and the A350.

Also trying to book these as far out as possible to maybe (doubtfully) get to try the new QSuite... but based on what I've read there is virtually no chance of getting a QSuite on these routes.

Edit: It looks like Google Flights lets you select some BKK 77W routes (QSuites?) but I can't select when pricing through on QR website.

Is the deadline May 3rd at Midnight ARN time?

Qatar just announced a free stopover program for guests traveling through doha in all classes. They give you a free hotel night at any of the listed five star hotels. Guys booking the above fare should take benefit of this option.

Good to know - this seems like an extension of the old stopover policy where J pax would be put up in a hotel for free if the shortest connection was longer than 8 hours. This will come in very useful!

It will be very handy to break up a journey and profitable for Qatar to drive tourism however I didn't really enjoy Doha that much the couple of times I've been there. Maybe that's just me of course !

Just a small warning... It is quite common for QR to change the aircraft on its routes, and it seems to happen quite frequently on the BKK route. In the QR forum, there is a thread specifically discussing BKK flights. I would book based on convenience and not be totally surprised if your aircraft changes before the flight date.
