adding DOH stopover when flying MEL-ORD

Hello Qatar experts

I cannot figure out how to add a 4 day , and a 1 day stopover in Doha to visit friends as I travel Melbourne to Chicago , the long way

So far I can fly one way business for about $7000, if I make it return it is $9000 so I will fly it return as well

I plan to credit my Qantas FFP ( random line )

Currently I have checked departure on QR0905 September 5 and ongoing QR0725, I would like to board QR0725 on September 9th , so adding a stopover

On the return

QR0726 October 3 and ongoing QR0904 , I would like to board QR0904 October 5th

If I book it as a multi city i get an error seats and flight are not available but they are there when I look individually

Any guidance would be helpful

thanks

Sorry for the newbie question: For next month I have booked QR SOF-DOH-HKT in Eco (with CNX-DOH-SOF in the same booking). I'd like to try and cash-upgrade into C. Best way to do this would be at check-in (or even at the gate) in Sofia on the day of the flight, correct? Is it also possible to upgrade only individual legs, e.g. only DOH-HKT? What would be a realistic price? Probably not worth trying to haggle on the spot, or should I?

They usually send you an email 1 to 2 weeks prior to departure. Yes you can upgrade only 1 segment. Alternatively you can ask at the airport. As for haggling in my experience NO, they have a set fixed price.

The upgrade price has most certainly been set by revenue management which is deep in the back-office. The check-in agent or a call centre CSR has zero authority to change that.

Where do the upgrade offers appear in the app? So far I've only ever received emails so I don't bother looking at the app.

Update, this is done and dusted

once I got in touch with the correct Qatar folks it was the cheapest to book 2 round trip tickets Mel-doh return and doh -ord return

they were helpful once you get a real person to talk to

Thanks! Guess the "upgrade offer" tab only appears closer to departure? Will have a peek at the app next time.

Planing ahead

I love this thread and you guys are awesome!
So I have upcoming trip Toronto Canada to Colombo SL

Route: YYZ (via AA) to PHL to DOH to CMB
Flights: RJ145 (don’t care much) + A359 both routes (love this plane)
Dates: August 15 landing on August 17 (2hr layover in Doh - longest layover)
Economy classes: O, T, T

Preparation: should I keep an eye out for seat availability on EF and hope for an email to come
through? Or should I call CS about 2 weeks out and ask them for a cash offer (if there is a possibility of one?)

what would be be the best plan of action? I’ll be flying for about 29hrs and would love to get an upgrade plus I’ve been dreaming to try the Qsuites

thank you in advance for any advise you can offer !

also if I get an email / app notification or the CS plan goes well; I will definitely post it here

Out of topic:
5 months ago I flew EK: got an email 14days before YYZ to DXB Economy to business upgrade (sorry cant remember the class) = 900CAD - did not take since I only paid $1200 for the return ticket even tho it was an a380.

on my way back I asked for an upgrade at the desk and the agent said they can only offer the price difference rate which was over $3k
