Trying to get onto their website....looks like it is getting hammered with traffic, as unable to access to booking engine.

trying to book a 2 for 1 deal but at the end the booking system wants to charge for 2

Hi,

I'm trying to book a 2 for 1 deal but at the end the booking system wants to charge for 2 flights.

I've gone through this URL:

http://www.qatarairways.com/email/11...20030500000130

Munich - Melbourne / Melbourne - Munich

The price quoted per person is 888 euros but when I try to book it quotes 1800 euros for 2 people. The system even says this is the 2 for 1 deal. Am I missing something???

thx, j

Now I am getting this message. Looks like this promotion is over for the time being. Is anyone else getting the same message?


Due to technical problems with our booking system, customers may have experienced difficulties booking the 2-for-1 offer.

For this reason, Qatar Airways is postponing the special promotion to start on 13 April (00:01hrs) until 14 April (23:59hrs). Qatar Airways will honour all 2-for-1 bookings made to date for this offer.

Yep and for those who wants to travel in May the ticket would be really 'last minute'

I want to travel from SIN. Went into the website on 13 Apr at 00:02 and it STILL gives the error message. Really losing confidence in QR's ability to deliver on this haphazard promo.

Umm...I could imagine that they are talking about local time in Qatar. So its still 4 hours and 20 minutes before April 13th in Doha. I would try again.

Someone mentioned earlier (might have been in another thread) that it's the local time of each user's country. This seems though a little unfair if seats are not saved for those who live in the west :/

I didn't even try to book last week, so I don't know how all this works. Do you book through the regular booking engine? Is there any chance to book return from a different city, e.g. LON-BKK/KUL-LON?

Sale is on now!

Not very spectacular fares though. Found a 441/person deal on
LGW-BKK-LHR, but the return was too early for me.

I'm not entirely sure i'd call 745.40 for two adults (LGW-DOH-LHR) an offer, when i looked last week it was only about 100 more without the offer for the same dates :/

I think its quiet good, 372 per adult LGW-DOH-LHR! But why oh why all returns are from LHR?

I have a holiday planned to Doha from 21-Aug to 18-Sep and the cheapest I can now get with Emirates 431 per adult and one infant = 986 now with Qatar 2-for-1 deal total price 816 but its not worth it really! Holiday planned for aug/sep not May/June ;(

I used to fly QR to Dubai/Doha for about 266 in 2008 prices now just crazy, they doubled in the last 2/3 years.

They are stopping flying to LGW but i have also noted that LHR had always been offered for returns... no idea why though...

I have seen offered for about 350 to DOH / DBX but every year the prices rise I fly MAN to HKG and it has been 400 in 2008 (first every flight i took with QR) and now i am paying 530 (510 in November) and they want to charge me 560 for November
