I'm holding JFK-SIN-JFK with a stopover in DOH. Yellow box at the top of the page said something like in the title. But all the flights say business class (R). They don't let you choose a seat until after paying for the ticket, I guess, which might give me some clue. I know I have to call tomorrow but thought I'd see what FT thought. Thx

That warning often comes up. In fact a don't remember a booking process without it.

It means what is says, and might refer to any one of the available combination of online and code-share connecting options. If you select flights that clearly show business on all sectors you should have no more worries other than the regular concerns of QR travel.

As IAN-UK has pointed out, it is nothing to worry about.

When you search for flights, multi-city flights most often subject to this, you'll be presented with many flight options. Some of those options include flights that don't appear to have (or sell) Business class fares. If you pick flights combinations that all show Business, as you said with Business (R) then, it should not be a problem.

Very good, thanks. @IAN-UK, "the regular concerns of QR travel" refers to the blockade? I've never flown QR before but thought they were pretty good.

They are pretty good in terms of comfort and service. But in these hallowed pages you'll find constant niggles about aircraft switches, schedule refinements, odd rules about this and that (e.g. what constitutes a night-flight deserving of PJs in business-class, how to dress to enter a lounge) and the legendary customer service (often dreadful, sometimes fine, with very occasional splashes of joy).
