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.
The BEG flights are heavily (and I mean over 90%) leisure/tour group-oriented and quite often overbooked in Y, so I guess that's the reason. Fantastic deal for a 5-hour day flight for sure.

Got the same offer for the same route (BEG-DOH) for this week. I was really surprised considering it used to be much more expensive (around double the price). Sadly still haven't received an offer for my second leg DOH-SEZ

Just curious, does anyone know if the cash upgrade offer is for Qatar members only? I am an emerald OW but haven't received any offer yet and I am leaving in 10 days. The flight from BOS to DOH pretty much open in Economy and Business.

No, it's not exclusive to QRPC members.

A small data point that seat maps do not represent loads on QR flights;
- Seat selection is charged for most Y passengers thus most passengers tend not to purchase seats and wait until OLCI.
- For Business Class, there is the issue where partner award pax can't choose their seats because of the known issue + Business Classic without status need to pay for seats, thus most of these passengers don't have assigned seats until OLCI.

By the way, sometimes e-mails don't get sent but you would be able to see your offer on the "Manage my Booking" page if there is one available for you.

CPT-DOH (21 May)
7370 ZAR ($525)

Seems worth it for a 9.5 hr flight in A350-1000 QSuite...

Indeed. Have been holding out for a few days to see how upgrade price changes. Today the price was updated to 5764 ZAR (around $400). Needless to say I immediately made the upgrade
