Just booked through AMEX IAP for $2644 Feb next year.

Also for what its worth, the DOH-JRO-DOH flights are currently on a non-qsuites 787. The JRO-DOH leg also stops in DAR

Does QR still have that ridiculously generous change policy where you can change your destination to anywhere within 5000 miles?

Yes, but if I'm not mistaken, it's currently only for flights booked in 2020.

This price also is working for LAX - NBO, but the DOH-NBO leg is 6+ hrs in an A320 :/

Still flat beds, so not that bad

IMHO just a small part of the A320 fleet has/had lie-flats. They used to show on the QR cargo website. Have they recently upgraded the fleet?

Also NBO was 3x daily - one was on the B787 - before COVID.

Very nice catch.

Was able to rebook LAX-JRO/CPT-LAX for $2648.55 on Amex IAP.

I see the same price to KUL and SIN On google flights starting February through most of May. It appears to only work with a 7 day trip, e.g. Feb 10-17.

I got it to work for Sept 2021 for 2.9k. Trip length just over 2 weeks. Unfortunately, I had to make it an open jaw with a return from JNB which added $250 to that, but still a pretty good deal.

The departure to CPT was on a Sunday, had it been the next day, Monday, it would have added $100.

Booked directly on the Qatar site, couldn't use AMEX because I needed to lock in the ticket and AMEX only goes 330 days out.

I know it will require an additional flight to get to JRO but you can still fly from LAX to DAR on QR for ~ $3100
