So I have access to my families tickets all travelling at different dates individually. (No not a lockdown parry!)

14 Feb Man > Doh 403
15 Feb Doh > Isb 216
book both 516
Booking class N
booked 3 days ago

Im flying from Lhr a few weeks later so once that shows Im going to check it. If its around the same I might bite, checked a phone reprise and was quoted 800 for the entire segment. Out of interest how better have people faired at checkin compared go online offer? Also how can I tell if the 777 from lhr has the Q suite?

You can't for certain, mainly because there is no guarantee of what airframe you will get on any specific flight, Qatar have an art for swapping airframes. However, out of all their routes, as a premium and important route for the airline LHR is going to be prioritised to get QSuites wherever possible. Even if you do get swapped to another widebody aircraft, they all have good interiors in J.

Hello guys!
Who recently did the cash upgrade and can share the Qatar receipt with me? (you can hide your personal data for sure)
My company agreed to pay it, but I need to check the payment receipt firstly.

Thank you in advance.

I had a offer for my flights AMS-DOH-DXB going 24 march and flying back april 4 booked in T class going out and O class coming back, first they wanted 299 Euros for AMS-DOH and 249 for DOH-DXB i waited a little bit and now i got AMS-DOH for 229 euros which is not bad i think.I am not gonna bother with the DOH-DXB sector way to expensive for a 1 hour flight. I also already have an offer for the return DOH-AMS at 354 euros, i just gonna wait and see if it goes down like before.

Flying Dubai to Doha tomorrow in economy. They offered me to J for 850QAR, so like 180.
But I didn't take it for a 45 min flight when I'll have 6 hours in the lounge after.

Received the following today. Looks like prices are back to pre-covid levels and no discount for buying both

BOS-DOH $1283
DOH-NBO $484

literally same price as paying the fare but fewer miles earned. No thanks

DUB > DOH Economy (N) to business. €402 - Noticed it on MMB. Seemed like a decent offer so took it. However the baggage allowance remains at 25kgs. I guess I should have properly read the T&Cs.

Hope everything goes smoothly and no cancellations.

Got an offer for BEG-DOH-MLE, about a week in advance. Interestingly, the second leg is almost twice as expensive as the first (€144 vs €330 per pax) even though the flight time is roughly the same. Decided to take them up on BEG-DOH and skip DOH-MLE.

BEG-DOH for 144 is really great.
IST/SAW-DOH is much shorter and I have got nothing under 400 for that route.

DOH-MLE for 330 is also a decent deal when the demand for Mal is really high.
