Flight well well. Turned out I was the only person in the business cabin. Crew were creat!

Nice to see that they reduced the upgrade price. I have never seen this happen before.

Just got the following for my flight in June

SIN - DOH 786sgd (~600 usd)
DOH - IAH 1463 sgd (~1110 usd)

Im thinking of waiting to closer before purchasing the upgrade on the DOH-IAH flight.

Is there a way to see how booked a flight is?

For a flight later this month:

Manchester to Doha 494 GBP
Doha To Hong Kong 352 GBP

Interestingly, the email mentioned that this upgrade consist of extra 1 piece / 10kg baggage.

However I'd take this with a grain of salt, since the link from the email didn't work.

My biggest problem paying for upgrades during covid times is the risk of denied boarding for whatever reason (wrong test result, changing rules etc), and while the rest of the flight is refundable/changable under Qatar rules, this upgrade fees will remain non-refundable from what i can tell? This means the only time to pay for upgrade will be at the airport once you know you're actually getting on the plane.
