Upgrade offer Y to J $1,150.00 USD for DOH-LHR departing in 5 x days, an increase from $950.00 offer last week which had expired by the time I went to purchase.
Even though there are 17 x available seats cannot see this being reduced

Just to let you know that unchosen seats on the seat map does not indicate the number of available seats.
Most QR passengers who doesn't have status on "P" and "R" fare buckets tend not to pay for seat selection in advance and they wait for online check-in or at the airport to choose their seats.

KBP - DOH. 31st Dec Y(S) - J. $575 per passenger
DOH - MLE, 1st Jan Y(S) - J. $765 per passenger
No way for either option. IMHO too much for 4-5hrs flights especialy for KBP-DOH on short haul A320.

Flights in the first week of January:

GRU-DOH (13h flight duration): 3,826 BRL (~680 USD), valid for 7 days, sent 14 days before the flight, from N to Qsuite.
GRU-DOH (13h flight duration): 3,778 BRL (~670 USD), valid for 6 days, sent 7 days before the flight, from N to Qsuite.

DOH-BER (6.5h flight duration): 2,264 BRL (~405 USD), 14 days before the flight, from N to Business (no Qsuite).

The GRU-DOH price is quite decent, but I'll only buy it once I get my negative covid test. The Terms and Conditions still state the upgrades are non-changeable and non-redundable.

Both are very, very reasonable amounts to be fair.

GRU-DOH for sure, but I'm not sure I'd pay 405 USD for a 6,5-hour flight for one-way J without extra miles and lounge access.

I understand where you're coming from - I'm just saying that statistically, 400 USD for a ME-EU upgrade on QR is reasonable in comparison to other offers.

I'll be flying SOF to DXB in early March, tried upgrading with qmiles but since I'm travelling with infant I'm not allowed to upgrade with qmiles. Does anyone know if I might get upgrade offer to upgrade with cash or since I'm travelling with infant I'm not eligible for this as well? Thanks
