LHR - DOH Economy(Q) -> business (Q suite)
11 days out
USD 736.
is the price fixed, or is it worth me waiting to see if it goes down?

There's a chance that the offer might get rescinded if you don't take it soon, so it's a gamble to wait for a drop in price. LHR-DOH is a 6.5 hour flight so you have to see if it's worth upgrading in general or not.

736 USD for just over 6 hours sounds a bit steep. We've seen similar offers here for flights from the West Coast to DOH.

true. But LHR has got the best part of 100 in taxes increase over the economy rate, which will also have to be factored in.

Qr 731 upgrade? Doh- dfw

Hi All,
Ive been reading through the threads and I cant seem to find any info on my flight. The experts help would greatly be appreciated.

I am flying DOH-DFW on QR 731, and I was offered an upgrade to business class for $1,030.

does my flight have qsuites and is it worth the price?

For a 16-hour flight, I'd definitely be tempted, QSuite or not. That works out to around $60 per hour, which is not bad at all.

I would say $1000 is "reasonable." Not the lowest I've seen ex-USA but also seen higher. $1000 is about where I think it makes sense for me personally after buying a Y ticket. There is 1 lingering non q suite 77L out there I believe? Others can correct me

So under the Health worker campaign, you were NOT offered an upgrade days before the flight but was only offered an upgrade at checkin/airport? I'll be flying YUL_DOH on the same campaign in November.

In our case any previous upgrade offered....but I don't know if that's mandatory for any other health worker campaign ticket
We proactively ask for the upgrade at the check in counter

Is this a good upgrade offer?

I'm wondering if this is a good offer. The planes are A350-1000 and 777-300ER respectively.

QR1342; NBO-DOH; N-? $286; Offer received 14 days before Sep 20, 2021 flight
QR0719; DOH-SEA; N-? $926; Offer received 14 days before Sep 20, 2021 flight
Total $1072 per person if both offers are accepted ($2144 for both wife and me)

It would mark-up to U fare class and you would get miles/points based on N fare class.
The offer is a fair offer but not cheap.

Please clarify. Does the U in U fare class refer to Upgrade?

No. RBD 'U' is just the fare class allocated by QR for upgrades to J class.
