[NEWBIE LOUNGE] Ask your questions here. Flame free

Hi there

We'd like to introduce the concept of the "Newbie Lounge" to the QR forum. We've used it successfully in other forums. So if you are new to FT or new to flying Qatar, and have a question, please post this here.

This thread will become a "sticky" meaning it will sit at the top of this page.

As always, Zol and I welcome any feedback for improvements to the QR forum

Regards

diamond tier

Guys,

Diamond Tier in QR is there such a thing?

EY Guest program asks you if you have other FFs and if you select QR it would display all the current + "diamond"

Hi TamagOchi,

Kindly be informed that there is no Diamond Tier in the Qatar Airways Privilege club. At the moment we have Gold, Silver, Burgundy and Privilege club.

To find out more about the Membership tier and benefit, please log to http://www.qatarairways.com/global/e...-benefits.page

Hi Red duster,

Please be noted that the service from Doha to Melbourne is operated with 02 cabin classes which are business class and economy class. If you wish to book flights on mixed class, please contact the nearest Qatar Airways reservation or send me a private message with full name of passenger and preferred iten so I can make a provisional booking for you.

Best regards,
Alex @ The Qatar Airways Community.

i asked this in the OW joining thread, but probably should have asked here...

How much would it cost to fly EWR-AMD on award travel using AA points? I was hoping it would not be like BA where just the fees would more than a cheap ticket

Also. How is the award seat availability on Qatar? I'm *a gold and thinking of switching to OW

Hi Joe,

Our redemption partnership with One World is currently being looked at and hopefully after 8-12 months, it will be available.

For the cost of award travel on AA point, please contact AA for further assistance and information.

Best regards,
Alex @ The Qatar Airways Community.

I may be taking a QR flight GRU-EZE next month. Can anyone tell me my mileage earning options? My main FF accounts are with AA, BA and UA.

Lounge Access

Hi, a couple of questions to clarify the statements in the benefits section of the website.

I have recently obtained Gold status, could you tell me if I am entitled to have a guest join me in business lounges at any airport when flying Qatar?

Is the lounge for Gold members in Doha the gold or Oryx lounge?

- Complimentary guest lounge passes Receive four guest passes per year and invite additional guests to join you in the Oryx Lounge.

Is the lounge for Gold members in Doha the gold or Oryx lounge?
- Unlimited lounge access
Enjoy the Oryx Lounge in Doha and business class lounges at select airports regardless of your class of travel.

Best regards,
Alex @ The Qatar Airways Community.

Is the only way to grab a exit row seat, to meet up early at the airport or are they some times open during OLCI?
