Avios now awarded 2 hours before flight

Quite amazed by this sudden announcement. Qatar announced just now that everyone is getting their points up to 2 hours before their flight! Only on QR metal and only for Qatar PC members.

You can also use avios to spend in all stores in Hamad International now too as full or part-pay.
joorinainen and Loungeabout like this.

There's a writeup on the HfP website - other travel/points websites exist.

In line with above I've had this been happening to me too with the QPoints being credited at the normal timing after. Can't complain as it allowed me to airport upgrade during my last trip!

No wonder - I noticed this started happening on my last few trips in December, I thought it was odd I got the QR App notification pop up thank you for flying with us with the avios credited a few hours before the flight itself.
