QR J JFK to BKK rt $3300

Not exactly a deal, but is much cheaper than what they’re usually asking for right now, and you have a chance to try q-suites
dates seem to be every Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday from March onwards. 1 week min stay

Yeah I wouldn't exactly count the 1.7 CPM on miles earned as part of the savings, but 2.8k is a good price.

I haven't done a full comparison, but it looks like this fare is very similar to AY's JFK-BKK biz fare. With AY, you'd have longer connections in HEL.

If crediting to AA, both give about the same EQM (I haven't looked at the actual mileage, but biz gives 1.5 per mile).
However, for EQD, AY biz credits at 25% mileage, while QR biz at 20%.

If you do 777 connecting to A380, and A380 to 777 on return, better product on QR I think (hard, soft and ground).

Oh I'm sure the product is far better on QR. Just wanted to warn anyone who is crediting to AA. I find it odd that AA gives AY flights more EQD.
I've been on AY. The JFK-HEL A330 was just ok. I flew HEL-SIN on a newish A350 which was a good ride with good crew. But I still think QR would be better.

Probably because AY is part of the OW TATL JV, so AA gets a share of that revenue as well.

Was looking for this over New Years and while I couldn't find this QR fare for my preferred dates from ORD, EY has ORD-AUH-BKK in business (Z fare) for USD 3,298 RT. Similar fare from JFK, probably others too.
