That's a really good deal, half the cost of flying to AKL from Germany!!

Seems ARN has quite a few cheap biz deals to various places (not just Qatar, but *A and ST also). A quick €100 positioning flight can save literally thousands. I wonder if they're trying to raise ARN's profile as an international hub?

Or I wonder if it has anything to do with the growth of the "flygskam" movement in Sweden reducing the demand for air travel?

Good point, either way it's a win for me!

Departure OSL/TRF seems to be some 100 GBP cheaper. ex-CPH for ~100 GBP more.

The DOH to AKL flight is over 9000 miles alone. If you have to fly 16+ hours non stop you might as well spend it in a Q Suite!

QR themselves disagree with you, as per the Asia-Pacific section of the dedicated Qsuite page: https://www.qatarairways.com/en-gb/onboard/qsuite.html
Auckland
Auckland, New Zealand’s largest city, is your gateway to spectacular coastlines and lush forest landscapes. This 21st-century city is no more than half an hour from a stunning beach, whichever direction you travel.

Flight no: QR 920/921

I remember spending over 20 hours AKL to DOH on non q-suites two years ago due to the refuelling stop in Adelaide due to the fuel issues at AKL. Still enjoyed it since we only paid £1300 from ARN.

I paid £1300 too, but MAN-AKL. I really liked the seats on the old 777 to AKL, large and very comfy especially in sleep mode

Sorry, there are threads that pre-date the "movement" discussing the same subject with other conclusions. I'm sure that blaming Windroe, Noregian and WOW would not have gone over so well at the SAS board meeting.

This.. the one route I would prefer the old seat if travelling with someone else.
