Yes, from Lisbon to Doha, and Doha to Seoul, it was the first time in the offer that I noticed this remark "if you upgrade both legs we give you a discount" I don't know if it is something new, or if I never noticed it before.

Economy-First

Cash offer: 1664 QAR
Fare difference from my ticket to First: 1180 QAR

That's an incredibly bad pricing engine... get the seat but NONE of the perks for only 484 QAR extra!?!

DOH-SYD J-F

Just seen an offer of SEK12731 J-F for DOH-SYD as part of an ARN-SYD MEL-DOH DOH-ARN itinerary. That’s over £1000 so even though it’s a long flight and the A380 looks fairly heavily loaded in J for the DOH-SYD sector, seems a bit steep. Not tempted currently.

Offer appeared in the app at 36 hours before departure.

Got offered QAR 2185 (around $600) to upgrade DOH-BEY. A year ago, used to get offers for half, and even then, I thought it was too steep for a 2.5 hour flight with a seat-only upgrade.

To continue the story: got to gate in Doha and received the magic beep. Moved to 1K down to SYD. Most welcome. Biz would have been quite comfortable but this was even better and the toilets a significant improvement. The Krug 2004 is quite good, too

DOH-PER J to F 1226 NOK, roughly £1000, seems to be the going rate for DOH to Australia at the moment. Given total OSL-PER return was £2000 and pennies it is hardly tempting.

I received an offer to upgrade economy to business jfk to doh for $1450 per person. Also doh to jnb for $435. I accepted the doh to jnb offer. The jfk to doh is to rich for my blood.

I'm wondering, considering the current situation, are the upgrades still being offered? Has anyone recently been given an offer for upcoming flight?

How "little" to prevent you from going?? I'll bet you mean "major".
We are using the English language here - not Gaeilge/Irish as spoken in Dublin.
Mean what you say, and say what you mean. Otherwise your comments are useless.

Firstly you missed the humour here, like REALLY missed it.

Second, we don't speak Irish in Dublin!

Third, you had to be that pedantic idiot to post about this!

Gobshite....as we say in Dublin!

Aw thats so nice! QR couldn't get in touch about my flight voucher but they did kindly offer to upgrade the PER-DOH-DUB next week! Not much use as I am sitting at home drinking tea instead of flying to see my family in Oz because of some little virus thing!!!!!!!!! (sarcastic post)

PER-DOH €575
DOH-DUB €298

My partner and child got the offer as well

PER-DOH €1149
DOH-DUB €996

From the previous posts and my own experience it seems like QR started to offer more reasonable upgrade prices but still over what I find is a good offer (I would prefer to use Qmiles to upgrade at the airport) :
HKG-DOH V Class to biz 3,456 HKD = $445
but
DOH-CDG V class to biz 4,185 HKD = $539 (more expensive for a shorter flight...)
