Actually one of the best prices i have ever seen to be honest. BA usually asks 300£ to upgrade to PE... LH around 200£. Probably they need the cash!

As someone new to Privilege Club, I would like to ask if I earn Qmiles and Qpoints according to Business Class when I accept these discounted cash upgrades or would I still earn Economy Class points for the original fare booked.

you would earn the Qmiles & Qpoints according to the original fare class booked (the same is also stated in their T&Cs when doing the online upgrade)

Just for the reference I have received these offers for flights this month

IST-DOH Y -> J $629
DOH-IAD Y -> J $749

Probably, I wouldn't take both of them.

Wow, the IAD leg is great value by comparison. Maybe its based on J/aircraft type? I assume 777 or a350 both with QSuite.

I'm hoping I get offered something from BJV in August on an a320.

IST-DOH was a 77W with Q-Suites when I first received the offer, then it was swapped to an A359 with the old Business seats, the price didn't change, it's still $629
DOH-IAD is an A359 with Q-Suites since I booked the ticket.

By the way, I forgot to mention that QR offers a $165 discount when I upgrade both flights at the same time.

Does QR offer same upgrade cost from any economy fare including lowest promotional restricted economy fares?

Both of the flights that I received an offer is booked at N fare class ( Economy Saver ). I do not have any information for cheaper fare buckets ( Economy Promo ).

Out of curiosity, how many days before departure did you receive the offer?

DFW > DOH $639 July 21 flight QR730
DOH > ZNZ $363 July 22 flight QR 1353
-discount of $106 if both legs are upgraded. These prices are fantastic, IMHO.
-offer received 7 days before flight

Email received at 8:01am, started trying to accept the offer at 8:09, but multiple error messages. Finally got it to upgrade the first leg only, but really wanted the second as well because they shortened my connection time and now I have to cancel my Oryx room. I think the problem is that flight 1353 now has a technical stop in DAR and I can't even get it to pull up on ExpertFlyer.com. Has anyone dealt with this? Any chance I can upgrade the second leg at the airport?

Thanks, experts!
