The Satay Fare EDI-PEN-EDI

This thread is for those who have booked flights to Penang (PEN) as part of a QR Flash Sale.

Flights are currently (22//08/18) priced at circa 800 - and you can route via LHR too:

EDI-DOH-PEN-DOH-EDI
EDI-LHR-DOH-PEN-DOH-LHR-EDI

Please add your flights into this thread, so we can try and match FTers on the same flights.

I will create a WIKI shortly.

Safe travels,

M

Is it bookable only on BA or on Qatars site as well? Also, when's the best time to visit?

* May use cooling off to move this to another Q Suite flight - can't decide between A380 bar or second go in Q Suites. I've not done either, so any tips would be great

If you've never done an airline bar then I'd do that. Q Suites one way, 380 the other.

Well done satay lovers :-)

I can't find anywhere still selling it. Plenty still advertising it but then fails a few stages into purchasing.
Gutted, would have loved a nice J trip to Penang at that price and 560 lovely TPs.

If anyone finds somewhere still foolish enough to be selling & ticketing please let me know :-)


Congrats.

Emirates bar is better in my opinion but yes, I'd give Qsuites a go one way then A380 the other.
Not been in QSuites yet.

Satay fare? Based on what Mrs PtF and I ate while we were in PEN earlier this year Id have suggested Beef Rendang fare.

Seems to be a limited number of FTers in on this fare. Maybe this in an indication that it is likely to be honoured?

Anyway i am booked at the end of February via LHR both ways. Q suites one way and A380 the other so especially looking forward to those legs.

Surely with Penang's strong Chinese heritage, it should be a Chinese Malaysian dish?
Maybe the Hokkien Mee fare?
