For two people

KWI - Doha - 750 USD
Doha - Seattle - 1750 USD

Will they send another email with a better offer or does Qatar Airways just send the one email? Was considering to wait and see if the price goes lower. Definitely will not upgrade Kwi-doha since it’s a 1.5 flight. Considering Doha to Seattle flight however.

I have received a second email once before but with a higher price. I believe there is a reported instance in this thread of someone getting a lower price in the second email. Definitely seems to depend on load and what revenue management is thinking

I purchased an upgrade for $854.00 US for 2 traveling companions for a flight this weekend. I was traveling by car when received upgrade offer, I paid for with my PayPal account, then the cell link dropped out. Got no related corespondence from Qatar. My Paypal account indicates Qatar Airlines upgrade paid $854.00. I called Qatar explainning the upgrade situation and payment. She checked it out and could not find any upgrade info related to the tix. She refused to take the Paypal/Qatar invoice numbers and became short with me. At this point I knew, I could sort out the money later. So asked if there were any upgrades on that flight. Becuase my foreign phone ran out of time cutoff again.

Disputed the transaction with PayPal and PayPal sent the dispute to Qatar within 30 minutes. Unfortunately Qatar has until the 27th to respond, the flights are this weekend. I really wanted to get this upgrade for a Mother and Child on 14 hour segment.

The funny thing was up to a month ago biz was only half full on most flights, then Qatar canceled almost all flights every other day.

Just saw the offers on Qatar's website (from Eco to Biz):

HKG - DOH : 5109HKD (USD650)
DOH - MUC: 2905HKD (USD370)

Anyone of the offers worth it? Would I be able to use a lounge in DOH with any of those upgrades?

Also, HKGDOH on A359, and DOHMUC on B788 at the moment, so not much Q-suite chance.

Lounge access is only available to ticketed (not upgraded) passengers (not including Business Classic).

You don't get a refund for seat selection if you voluntarily upgrade.
